This varies grower by grower and by the specific category, we would rather answer your questions accurately and in accordance with that's available on that particular day rather than possibly make an untrue claim.  Items should be marked "organic" if they are either certified organic or grown via organic practices.

Are you getting that special corn this year?

For several years we brought in corn from the mid west region in late August, this was very popular once a year event.  Over the last few years we have not had the resources to do this for logistical reasons and the rise in fuel prices.  We unfortunately do not have the time to drive 16 hours one way and make a 4 days trip during our peak season.  There is always a chance this ill change and if that does, our customers will be the first to know!

What's in season?

This chart is a good reference point of when our North and South Carolina fruits and vegetables are in season.  We bring in selected fruits and vegetable from other regions and states when not available from our local growers.  Transparency and honesty is a core value of how we market our products.  It is always important to say, there are items that we sell that just are not locally grown, ever such as avocados, bananas, and pineapples for example.  If you ever have a questions please don't hesitate to ask or look in the bottom right hand part of the Union Market price tag to see the true origin and farm of the product.
