Fresh and Local Produce, Fruit… how local?

It has come to our attention that a few customers may be questioning where some of our fruit comes from.    We do have peaches, nectarines and some apples, that have randomly placed blue stickers. They might give the impression that the fruit comes from the grocery store.      To quell any concerns, we can say with certainty that this fruit comes from Chiles Orchard in Crozet, VA.   The vendor leases trees there for his use.    The orchard is required to randomly place stickers on all fruit leaving the orchard so the location origin can quickly be identified.

The fruit is brought directly to farmers markets from the orchard.     We stand behind all of our vendors for adhering to our rules and guidelines regarding any product which must come from a 75 – 100 mile radius and be produced or grown by the individual and / or family members.

Stop by …  we’re so colorful and ripe with juicy good food!
