Apples: Apple Guide Here

There are countless varieties of apples. They are full of antioxidants, alkaline and fiber! We carry organic and conventional apples. Some farms are also transitioning to become organic certified!

Asian Pears:

High in fibre, low in calories and a good source of Vitamin K and C, copper, and potassium. Asian pears are super crunchy, more like crisp apples than other pears


This tangy leaf is great in salads, pastas, or topping a pizza. Ask a produce specialist to sample some if you have not tried it before! Due to COVID-19 safety guidelines, we may not have loose, local arugula this year.


Steamed, Roasted or Raw, these beauties are delicious (and will stain your clothes!). Trick: Wrap in foil and bake in the oven, then the skin will naturally peel off. 

Bok Choy:

Bok choy is similar to cabbage with a mild, fresh, and grassy flavor with a slight peppery kick. The stalks have a celery-like crunch.

Brussel Sprouts:

These veggies have a very interesting way of growing up a stalk. Shred them and make a salad or roast in a little oil!


This is a family favorite of the cruciferous veggies. The word broccoli comes from the Italian plural of broccolo, which means “the flowering crest of a cabbage”. It is a great source of fibre and protein!

Bunched Carrots:

Carrots are usually oranges, but can be found in purple, yellow, and white. They are crunchy, tasty, and delicious, and are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidant. Removing the peel is not necessary when consuming. If the carrot is organic and you enjoy the slight change in texture, the peel contains phytonutrients and small amounts of the vitamins and minerals.


Cabbage is a leafy green vegetable grown for its dense heads, and is in the same family as broccoli and cauliflower. 


This cruciferous veggie is very versatile! From pizza crust to rice to gnocchi to steaks to raw salads, it will not disappoint. 


Celery is part of the Apiaceae family, which includes carrots, parsnips, and parsley. Its crunchy stalks make the vegetable a popular low-calorie and high fibre snack. During these colder months, it is great in soups and for making vegetable stocks.


These tart and tangy treats make great sauce and can add a nice sweet touch to savory dishes. We only carry fresh cranberries September to November, our first batch is from Canada.

Hard Squashes: Winter Squash Guide Here

Choose the hardest squash for the best flavor. We carry many different types of squash and some have edible skins! Grab one of our squash guides for specific varieties!


Leeks have a mild, onion-like taste. The edible portions of the leek are the white base of the leaves, the light green parts, and to a lesser extent the dark green parts of the leaves. Be sure to rinse thoroughly before using, dirt likes to hide deep in the leaves. 


There are two main types of Persimmons; Fuyus are flatter and delicious raw, and the taller, acorn-shaped ones are called Hachiya and are better for baking with. Persimmons soothe a sore throat and digestive tract. 


Pears come in a near endless variety, try them all to find your favorite! They ripen off the tree to get their creamy texture and are ready when they yield to gentle pressure. 


Look for the fruit that is heavy for its size, that promises lots of juice!


Pumpkin flesh is full of antioxidants and the seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The best pumpkins for baking are small sugar or sugar pie varieties. 


This veggie is somewhere between cabbage and a turnip. They are high in fiber, potassium, and Vitamin C.

Bunched Spinach: 

This leafy green is great raw in a salad, juiced, or in a smoothie, or cooked into pasta sauces and sauteed. It is high vitamin C, potassium, and protein. 

Sweet Potatoes:

These yummy treats come in many colors and are not a potato or a yam.They are a nutritional powerhouse! 


Brassica family, along with cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and broccoli. Can be roasted along with or replacing carrots and potatoes


Walnuts are a great source of polyunsaturated fats, fiber, potassium, and protein. We get local walnuts in Autumn from Full Belly Farm! These tangy, tasty treats are great raw, in pies and desserts, and chopped in salads!
