Featured Produce Items
Fall is here, and so are fresh, locally-grown apples from Whistling Well Farm, Partner Farms, and Hoch Orchards. Varieties come and go throughout the season as they grow and ripen and include Sweetango, Haralson, Honeycrisp, Jonagold, and Zestar. Hoch produces certified organic apples while Partner Farms and Whistling Well both practice responsible growing methods with minimal environmental impact and limited pesticide use.
Now is the time for local squash! We have a large selection of locally-grown squash available now through winter from our partners at Wisconsin Growers and Featherstone Farm. Varieties include butternut, buttercup, delicate, kabocha, pie pumpkin, and spaghetti squash. These are a hallmark fall staple and go well in soups, stews, salads and side dishes.
Local Sweet Potatoes
Nothing says fall like flavorful, locally-grown sweet potatoes! We have multiple orange varieties from Wisconsin Growers and a purple variety from Hmong American Farmer’s Association (HAFA). Wisconsin Growers is a group of 30 Amish family farmers that came together to help each other and collectively market their products. HAFA is a local food hub that assists Hmong American farmers in accessing land and markets, farm financing, training, research, and sustainable business planning for future success. We support both growers and are proud to provide their food to you!
