Produce From Around the World


“Whenever it’s not in season here, it’s in season somewhere else,” says Rob Ybarra, the director of produce for Rouses Markets. First and foremost, he says, Rouses always buys local wherever possible. When something goes out of season here, the company casts its net widely, looking not only for the most delicious item grown elsewhere, but also for those most safely and responsibly grown.

How to Keep Produce Fresh

Leave berries unwashed until you are ready to use them. You can keep them in the container in which you bought them, in the fridge for a couple of days. But to make them last longer, place unwashed, uncut strawberries in a clean glass jar, screw on the lid and refrigerate. Your berries should stay fresh for at least a week. This works for all other berries, as well.

How to Store Dry Goods

Many of us store our coffee in the freezer, but you want to keep your grounds dry, so skip any storage spots exposed to moisture — that includes the refrigerator, freezer or a shelf above your stove. We recommend storing grounds in the pantry or cupboard instead, and using ground coffee within a week or two of opening, or whole beans within a month.
