Where does our Produce Come From?
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.

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, and not necessarily in this order: 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 in turns makes it possible for us to buy from, 2nd, through Small Farm Cooperatives & 3rd, direct from the grower.

Produce Storage Tips: (Don't clean produce until you are ready to use it)
Some fruits emit ethylene; an odorless, colorless gas that speeds ripening and can lead to the premature decay of nearby ethylene-sensitive vegetables. Put spinach or kale in the same bin as peaches or apples, and the greens will turn yellow and limp in just a couple of days. So the first trick is to separate produce that emits ethylene from produce that’s sensitive to it.

REFRIGERATE THESE GAS RELEASERS: (Melons should only be refrigerated when they are ripe)


Apples

Apricots

Canteloupe

Honeydew

Figs


DON'T REFRIGERATE THESE GAS RELEASERS: (Unless they are already ripe)

Avocados

Bananas, unripe

Nectarines

Peaches

Plums


LEAFY GREENS:

Store all Leafy Greens in plastic bags in the refrigerator for maximum freshness.



DO NOT REFRIGERATE:

Never refrigerate potatoes, onions, (this does not include the spring onions with greens) winter squash or garlic. Keep them in a cool, dark, dry cabinet.


STONE FRUIT:


Stone Fruit should be stored on your counter at room temperature, ideally away from sunlight. They should NOT be kept in a bowl but rather stored separately, not touching each other. Once ripe, they can go in the refrigerator.
