Produce

Our goal is to offer the largest, freshest, and cleanest selection of local and organic produce in the Richmond area. Our commitment to local starts with a 100-mile radius from our front door, that encompasses small family farms and growers dedicated to sustainable farming and agriculture. Please see our local grower rating scale below. Anything outside of this 100-mile radius but less than 300 miles is labeled as “Regional.”

Farmer Relationships: Our buying team visits these local farms and growers to insure product quality, growing methods, and maintain strong relationships for years to come. A commitment to local agriculture doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time and dedication. We’re proud to work directly with Virginia farmers to ensure that local products and vegetables are available to our customers year round and local farmers continue to grow.

Organic Produce: Our commitment to organic produce starts with a transparent method of buying that sources from Virginia, the United States and occasionally overseas. With a growing demand for organic produce, we work closely with our vendors to make sure this quality remains intact. Whether we’re getting apples from Virginia or outside of the US, the same standards apply. All of our organic produce is audited and certified by a USDA-accredited agent.

Conventional Produce: Occasionally due to seasonal availability and cost, we offer conventional produce. Conventional produce is always clearly marked and never touches organic produce.
