Deep Roots Market is proud to say that our produce department is the only one in town we know of that is 100% organic. That means you can shop freely -- no double-checking signs to choose between organic and conventional produce. We are also pleased to claim that we have made a significant commitment to local vendors, and we carry local produce year-round from such vendors as:
Check our homepage frequently for a current listing of in-season local fruits and vegetables. The selection varies depending on the season; luckily, in North Carolina farmers can grow greens during the cold months, and sweet potatoes and other root vegetables such as turnips and beets often remain in supply through the winter. Spring brings a greater area variety, with snap peas, strawberries, lettuces and more. In summer we celebrate the best of our rich regional bounty with carrots, radishes, apples, pears, summer squash and zucchini, fresh herbs such as basil, and even local specialties such as fresh figs, muscadines and scuppernongs. Occasionally, we bring in some fairly unusual and obscure items like paw paws or rare heirloom apples, when they become available.
We support and encourage organic growing practices in the North Carolina area as well as regional organizations that support farmers. Check out the endeavors of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association and Local Harvest. Do you know a local grower? Let us know!
We also carry organic fruits and vegetables that must be grown in other places -- bananas, oranges and more -- in order to provide you with a complete selection of produce year round.
