Without question our fresh produce departments is what we are best known and respected for. Organic or conventional produce, the choice is yours Each of our stores carries as many as 450 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables including the largest selection of organic produce available in season in our area. The majority of our fresh produce is purchased each day at the Chicago International Produce Market, where hundreds of trucks from the south, south west, California, Texas, the Pacific North West and Mexico arrive daily with produce that was growing in fields and orchards less than 72 hours earlier. In today’s global market there are also rail freight cars and overseas containers from ships and airlines delivering fruit and vegetables from all over the globe. With the built in efficiencies of transportation there really is not much reason to hear “out of season” when it comes to fresh produce.
In addition to fruits and vegetables we also carry a large selection of bulk priced dried fruits, nuts and fancy confections.
