It's always growing and harvest season somewhere, whether it's summertime's fresh-picked Long Island corn and Jersey tomatoes, or autumn's avalanche of NY State apples. In spring, wild salmon make their run in the Pacific Northwest, as do Maryland shad up the Chesapeake. In winter, Florida citrus is at its peak.

We support and applaud the work and products of family farms and smaller producers, whether they're local to us over the warm weather months or brought in from afar during the height of their own regional season.

Simple answer? We buy in season so you can.
