The local produce season is in full swing in our organic produce department! At the height of the season, we get daily deliveries of local produce with organic fruits and vegetables coming in from over a dozen New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York farms.
Organic Tomatoes: We have a wide selection of the Garden State’s favorite summer treat including Slicing, Roma, Grape, Cherry, Sungold, and Heirloom tomatoes.
Organic Peppers and Eggplant: Our farm friends at Cherry Grove Organic Farm and Sandbrook Meadow Farm are delivering wonderful Green and Jalapeño Peppers that are so fresh they fill our stockroom with a heavenly peppery aroma! Zone 7 and Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op are bringing us Red, Yellow, and Baby Peppers, too. Italian and Japanese Eggplant are in prime season now as well.
Special Local Organic Summer Treats: The Organic Sweet Corn from Profeta Farm has been delicious. And the Organic Ground Cherries from Eagle Road Farm and Circle Brook Farm add a delightful burst of color and flavor to your salads or when eaten on their own.
Organic Summer Greens and Herbs fill our Produce displays: Dandelion Greens, Chives, Escarole, Flat Italian Parsley, Curly Parsley, Baby Salad Greens, Green Kale, Lacinato Kale, Red Kale, Butter Lettuce, Green Chard, Red Chard, and Mint.

And, if your neighbor hasn’t dropped baskets of squash on your doorstep, you can always find an assortment of Fresh, Local, Organic Summer Squash here at Whole Earth, including Green Zucchini, Golden Zucchini, Yellow Summer Squash, Patty Pan Squash, and Globe Squash. All are great for grilling or summer dishes.
