Where Does Our Produce Come From?
Our produce comes from Washington, Oregon, and California primarily. We always buy seasonally, so you will not find melons or corn for instance, in our bins in the winter.

Throughout the year we make it a priority to include locally grown produce 1st, and then when needed to make our bins balanced and complete, we include citrus, avocados, fresh greens and lettuces , etc. from California, and sometimes Mexico. We will always identify what is grown locally.

We procure our produce in 3 different ways: 1st, through two different wholesalers, one here in Washington, and one in Oregon, who both have networks of local farms that they buy produce from which makes it possible for us to buy from them as well.

2nd, through Small Farm Cooperatives & 3rd, direct from the grower.

We are very particular about what goes in our bins each week and we have made it a point over the years to get to know the farms and (labels) that we buy from.
