Nino’s Organic Produce

January 6, 2015
(0) Comments on this post

With each new year comes new opportunities. This year at Nino’s is no different. One of the fastest growing categories in the produce department is our organic fruits and vegetables.

Now some of you may have noticed that we have always carried some organic produce at Nino’s, others may not. But I’m here to tell you that my team and I are going to be putting forth a real effort to expand and emphasize the organic produce that is readily available at our stores.

organic-produceSome of the items we currently carry are broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, celery, romaine, lettuce, mushrooms, onions, potatoes, squashes, tomatoes, yams, artichokes, beans, beets, cabbage, greens, zucchini, yellow squash, apples, berries, grapes, lemons, bananas, oranges, kiwi, grapefruit, and pears. Now just like conventional produce, some of these are seasonal and if they are not up to Nino’s standards we will not buy them.

We also have already launched our new organic herb line which has been in our stores for some time now. So if you recently bought basil, rosemary, chives, thyme, oregano, and some of our other herbs you have already been enjoying the organic experience.

Another one of our most popular organic items is our Earthbound Farms organic salad line. Most of our stores have these salads displayed next to our Nino’s Market Greens fresh cut salad case. The varieties in the Earthbound Farms line are baby arugula, baby lettuce, baby romaine, spring mix, half & half, and our most popular the baby spinach blend.
All of our locations are now carrying full organic lines of fresh produce. The new year is the perfect time to start your organic diet.
