Who We Are

I love good food, it’s as simple as that! Organic produce tastes better, therefore whatever you prepare is going to be a better meal. I guess that’s the basis of my philosophy. That said, everyone deserves access to healthy GOOD food!

I have built a network of farmers, co-op’s and distributors that specializes in producing organically-grown produce. I appreciate knowing this group of folks that share my philosophy of growing and harvesting for optimum flavor and nutritional value rather than shelf life. Every week I source seasonal produce by sampling varieties of fruits and vegetables because It’s important for me to be able to share with our customers the ideal ripening time for richness in flavor. How many big box stores offer that service? Often a new customer is curious about a new variety we’re offering but hasn’t a clue as to how to prepare it, sharing recipes is part of what we do! It’s so exciting when we get reports of a successful meal and introducing someone to something new! Our little market allows you to buy local quality produce and other goodies thus contributing to community by keeping your dollars where you live. Everyone wins! Cool huh!

Stop by and taste the difference, we take the guesswork out of the equation because we taste it first!

We have a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag/Basket) policy. Bring your own reusable shopping bag or basket – or we’ll sell you one of ours!

Join our mailing list for news and information about event’s or workshops! We’ve got some goodies planned for our new location!

My personal philosophy has always been rooted in sustainability. I am the Principal Designer for Urbanscapes, my landscape design studio specializing in drought-tolerant gardens since 1990. I’ve had the pleasure of creating beautiful sustainable gardens as public spaces, historic gardens and commercial projects.

Returning to the community where I spent my formative years has been a full circle experience. Giving back to the community that taught me the ropes..I can now pay it forward! Doing something!
