Seward Co-op’s Produce Department is a seasonally focused, information-based department. Our goal is to present a wide variety of fresh, healthful produce at reasonable prices. The vibrancy of the Produce Department attests to Seward Co-op’s overall quality and commitment to freshness.
We receive multiple deliveries daily and support our local growers as long as the season permits. We offer a consistent yet varied supply of staples; several varieties of kales, carrots, apples, citrus, mushrooms and potatoes. When available, we also carry seasonal, specialty items, such as Treviso radicchio, stevia, kumquats, golden turnips and sweet onions.
Produce staff are always available for questions, comments or requests. We begin work each morning at 6 a.m., receiving orders, assessing quality and refurbishing displays. The appearance of the department changes daily. Combined, our Produce staff offers more than 150 years in produce, grocery retail and farming experience.
A delightful part of our job is meeting and developing relationships with local growers. We are in contact with more than 30 local providers, many of whom deliver directly to the store. It’s also not unusual for growers to make appearances in the store, getting to know the people who support them — Seward Co-op shoppers!
