Your Year Round Farmers Market

We Know Good Farmers. We go out personally to the local farms that support our community to choose the foods that will become your next delicious meal.

We Know Good Food. Our staff knows all the things you need to know about who grows your veggies and how they do it. If you are new to any fruit or vegetable on our shelves, just ask us how to prepare it. We are happy to help anyone make a new herbaceous friend, so don’t be afraid to ask, we’ll make all the introductions.

We Know Organic…We Helped Create It. Our Produce Department respects organic standards because we helped to make them back in 1990, when most people didn’t even know what organic meant. In 2000, when the National Organic Program was established, your co-op was at the table on Capitol Hill, to ensure those standards were strong.

We Play Fair. We are the only Food Justice Certified produce department in America! For over 45 years, we have given our producers a fair price for their hard work and our customers great prices on our shelves, because GreenStar believes that no one wins unless everyone does. Visit us for fair, fresh, fun, planet-friendly food.

These Citrus Season Specialties Bring Sunshine to the Finger Lakes

Buddha's HandOrganic Buddha’s Hand Citron

The Buddha’s Hand’s culinary virtues lie within its oily rind which is powerfully fragrant and aromatic and utilized for its zesting properties. Buddha’s Hand citron flavor is described as a unique blend of bitter and sweet, with lavender notes and a bright lemon highlight. Its health benefits include its ability to reduce pain, soothe gastrointestinal distress, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, ease menstrual issues, lower blood pressure, and clear up respiratory illness.

SatsumasOrganic Satsuma Tangerines

A fragrant and juicy fruit with segmented flesh and nearly seedless, their red orange, leathery and oily skin clings so loosely to its flesh that it can be peeled with just a few deft yanks. Satsumas are perhaps the sweetest tangerine and the sweetest known citrus variety.

Cara Cara oranges, are commonly referred to as “the pink navel”.

They look like a cross between a grapefruit and a blood orange.

Their taste is very sweet, and just a little spicy. You may even be reminded of  raspberries or strawberries.

Organic Blood Oranges

These juicy and fragrant winter fruits have a dark, ruby flesh, with a soft and easily removed peel.

Sweet and fruity with less acid than their strictly orange relatives, they will only deliver their sunshine-y goodness for another month or so.
