Our Roots Are In The Local Produce Business.
“My great grandfather, J.P. Rouse, founded the City Produce Company in 1923, bringing fruits and vegetables from local, independent farms to the rest of the state and eventually stores around the country. More than 90 years later, my family is more committed than ever to supporting our farmer neighbors. We work directly with each farming family to bring you the first and freshest of every crop.”
—Donny Rouse, CEO, 3rd Generation
At Season’s Peak: Northwest Cherries
Northwest cherry season lasts from the first week of June through the end of August. Look for deep, mahogany-red Bing cherries, which are firm and juicy. Large Rainier cherries that are yellow with a red blush. And heart-shaped Sweetheart cherries, which are firm, with a mild sweet flavor.
At Season’s Peak: Lori Anne Peaches
Lori Anne peaches are grown in the sunny fields of Titan Farms in Ridge Spring, South Carolina. Harvest methods are completely different than for conventional peaches. Lori Anne peaches are left on the trees to ripen much longer, then hand picked directly into small totes, rather than machine-harvested into huge bins. Lori Anne peaches have been a Rouses exclusive for years. They are our #1 summer peach.
“This is how a peach should taste.” – Donny Rouse, CEO, 3rd Generation
Produce That Tastes As Good As It Looks
We stock more than 300 types of fruits and vegetables and over 100 organic selections grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers every day. Our produce buyers travel to Washington to pick our apples, Idaho for our potatoes, and across the Gulf Coast to meet with local farmers.
