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. 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: Tropical Fruits
Our tropical fruit selection goes beyond pineapples, papayas, mangos, kiwis and coconuts. Look for sweet and tart choices like passion fruit and star fruit. Vividly pink dragon fruit, which tastes like a cross between a kiwi and a pear. And jackfruit, our most distinctive selection. This giant spiky fruit can be used for both savory and sweet dishes depending on its ripeness. Firm green jackfruit is great cooked. It has a meaty flavor and texture similar to pulled pork. Ripe jackfruit has a sweet taste like a combination of pineapple, mango and banana. Look for a yellowish skin with spikes that have softened, and a shape that yields under gentle pressure.
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.
