Thanks to modern agricultural methods and our global economy, we can enjoy fresh produce all year round. We all know that the produce department is front and center of the grocery store and that is because people have come to expect fresh fruits and vegetables to be readily available no matter the season.

The Produce Department

What Does Year-Round Seasonality Mean?

Seasonal produce retains more nutrients than out-of-season produce, making them the healthiest choice for you and your family. And seasonal produce doesn’t require unnatural preservatives to maintain freshness.

Our partner, North Bay Produce is an international grower-owned, year-round fresh produce marketing and distribution cooperative,  headquartered in Traverse City, Michigan.  The company is committed to providing high-quality seasonal produce, including blueberries, blackberries, apples, asparagus, raspberries, snow peas, sugar snaps, pomegranates and figs.

North Bay Produce is available year-round because the company’s growing regions are located across the United States, Mexico, Central America and South America.
