Always in Season with North Bay Produce - The Produce Moms


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.

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.
