Walk into Healthy Living and the first thing you’ll see is our gorgeous Produce Department, a wild and wonderful world of the freshest, highest-quality fruits and veggies you’ll find anywhere! We buy direct from our beloved local farms throughout the year, so our produce is about as fresh as if you’d picked it yourself. We’ve been working with local farmers for over 20 years and love doing business with this amazing community of hard-working people, who form the backbone of Vermont. We have a plethora of local and organic options, produce from ecologically grown and wild-crafted sources, and the cleanest conventional alternatives at the best prices. From local greens and snap peas, to seasonal apples and berries, we have everything a great Produce Department needs, plus a few fun, seasonal surprises! Not sure what celeriac is? Wanna know the best way to prepare morels? Just ask our produce staff – they’re always there to help!
Local Strawberries, Local, Local, Local
By Produce Manager • Thursday, June 6th, 2013
We are in full local swing and local strawberries from Adam’s Berry Farm are here! Get ‘em while they are fresh! More local berries on the horizon. Adam’s Berry Farm, is on the move and they are making a transition to a new place in Charlotte this year and have recently completed transplanting many of their blueberry plants. They will still be at the Intervale for the majority of the season while they transition to their new berry home.
Our local greens selection is growing too with many local large leaf lettuces available, as well as Jerchio Settler’s Escarole and Endive. Local Chards, Collards, and Cucumbers from Miskell’s Farm are here and we are also carrying a full array of tender young mustard greens from Pete’s Greens. Our greens case is getting closer and closer to being 100 % local due to the quality greenhouse space local farmers have dedicated to each little niche. Thank you to all of our wonderful farmers who have worked so hard to bring us these delicious treats!
