Where to Purchase Local Produce in Wilmington, NC

If you want to improve your health, start by eating something delicious: fresh produce. Fresh fruits and veggies are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber and they’re naturally low in calories. Adding produce to your diet is one of the best ways to prevent disease and feel better every day.

Fresh local produce tastes best and it keeps longer in the fridge, too. Area grocery stores like Harris Teeter and Whole Foods carry local produce in season, and food co-op Tidal Creek works with local farmers to carry lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits, especially organics. And it’s worth checking out small produce shops such as La Huerta and Country Fresh Produce.

While they’re in season, seek out local fruits and veggies from area farmers. Crisp spring greens, luscious summer peaches, and fall mountain apples will keep you coming back for more. Here are some local farmers markets to get you started.

Options For Local Seafood

OK, seafood is not a vegetable. But eating fish offers many health benefits and we live where fresh local seafood is available year-round. Avoid the imported stuff and visit your neighborhood seafood shop for a huge selection of flavorful local fish. We love Motts Channel Seafood at Wrightville Beach and Seaview Crab Company, with bright blue shops in midtown and Carolina Beach.
