Produce

IMG_0870Rising Tide takes pride in stocking our produce department with fresh and flavorful fruits and vegetables year round.  Most of our fruits and vegetables are organically grown and we try to buy as much local produce as possible.  In the height of Maine’s growing season our shelves are heaped full with produce from nearby farms, but even in the winter we work to bring you Maine’s freshest foods and support our local economy by buying squash, potatoes, pea shoots, fermented vegetables, and other winter-storage and cold-hearty crops from our Maine suppliers.

Our produce staff are experts in the fruits and vegetables they stock. Please ask them if you have any questions!
