Produce

The Big Carrot is proud to offer a wide selection of certified organic produce. Our extensive experience in the natural food industry allows us to draw from a variety of growers and distributors, as we strive to bring you the best quality of certified organic produce, year round.

We feature organic seasonal highlights, and local specialties from spring to fall, and stock as many local crops as are available during the winter months (primarily root crops and apples).

We buy directly from local producers whenever possible, and work with a number of certified organic, local distributors striving for an organic chain of supply, all the way from the organic farm to our produce department. 

We are proud to participate in GROW FOR THE STOP.  The Big Carrot donates 10% of the retail sales of THE NEW FARM's produce to The Stop Community Food Centre.

What does organic mean?

Providing customers with certified organic products is at the core of The Big Carrot's mission.

Central to the philosophy of organic farming is the preservation of soil structure and environmental vitality, through the use of substances and methods that are conducive to its sustainability.
