The CFS Produce Department is a labour of love staffed by an eclectic crew of farmers, comedians, artists, environmentalists, gardeners, homesteaders and a budding holistic nutritionist.
This team works hard and with love to ensure the CFS is home to Vancouver Island’s best organic produce department! Don’t worry we keep the blood, sweat, and tears off the produce.
We provide an abundant selection of beautiful organic fruits and vegetables. Our produce is sourced locally when in season and from BC, Canada and internationally, as needed. We have fresh fruits and vegetables delivered almost every day and delicious samples to enjoy. Are you making a big batch of sauerkraut or doing a juice cleanse? Come talk to us about ordering produce in bulk at co-op pricing.
As with the rest of store, the work has been done for you! You can trust you are buying the best. All produce sold in the store is organic (certified and uncertified) and ethically produced and harvested. No GMOs. No food grown or
contaminated with synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Along the front of the store you will find our Inglorious produce for $1/LB. An offering of less than perfect produce that is still perfectly good to eat, at an incredible discount.
As you can see, we are not just about selling produce. We are about: fair prices for our farmers and fair prices for our customers; ensuring organic produce is accessible to the widest number of people possible; ensuring local organic agriculture is supported and sustainable; building trust, relationships and community connections; reducing food waste and building soil.
We look forward to connecting with you soon!
