We are celebrating the jump in our Farm Direct purchases as our Spring growing season jumps into high gear! Last week 36% of total produce purchases were direct from Tri-County Farmers!

Stir Fry with beautiful Rainbow Chard from Miguel and Lorena at Ebby's Organic Farm in Goleta, only $1.49 a bunch!
We're also so excited for a quick supply of FIRST SEASON Brooks Cherries! Coming from Burkdoll Farm via Harvest Santa Barbara, an early-season intro price of $7.39/lb.

And BLUEBERRIES only $3.99 for a pint grown with organic practices. This means a healthier blueberry for you, our earth, and the farmworkers who pick these berries for your belly.
