Whole Foods may be a chain, but it prides itself on buying produce from
local farmers. That’s a big part of how Whole Foods’ reputation has
spread — wherever you see a Whole Foods sign, you know a good potion of
their fruits and vegetables came from practically up the road. But its
produce selection isn’t at the whim of the local growing season — if a
particular fruit or vegetable can’t be found locally, they’ll ship it in
from somewhere in the world where it’s currently in season. And with a
wide selection of organic produce, you can take care to keep unwanted
chemicals off your table.
Winner of Best Place to Buy Local Produce and Best Natural Food Market in the Fairfield County Advocate Best Of Readers' Poll 2012.
