Fair Trade Avocados
It’s avocado season in Michoacán, Mexico, and we’ve got organic avocados from Equal Exchange and PRAGOR, a co-op of small producers. Read more on our blog.
Navel oranges originate from a single orange tree that was planted in Brazil in 1820. Naturally seedless and easy to peel, with just the right amount of sweetness, these oranges are perfect for lunchboxes or picnics.
Clementines are a sweet and seedless varietal of mandarin orange that are marketed under many brand names: Halos, Cuties, and Smiles, to name a few. They’re a healthy, tasty snack and a great burst of Vitamin C for these cold and dreary winter days!
This year, we’re getting pecans from two farms: Indian Springs in eastern North Carolina, and New Communities Farm in Georgia. Read more on our blog.
These hearty fruits (yes, fruits!) are as beautiful as they are abundant, coming in a rainbow of shapes and colors. Related to the tender-skinned summer squashes, they require a longer growing season during which their skins become thick and tough for long-term storage through the winter. Their dense, sweet flesh takes a little longer to cook than their summer cousins but it is worth every minute. We’ll have many varieties this fall, from New Sprout Farm in Asheville and Eastern Carolina Organics, including acorn, butternut, delicata, kabocha, and spaghetti squashes.
Local Organic Sweet Potatoes
We have organic NC sweet potatoes year round! They’re in the ground the entire summer, harvested in the fall, and left to cure for a week or two in pack houses. Close to 100 percent of our sweet potatoes come from North Carolina, specifically Triple J Produce in Sims, NC. Read more.
