Friends Of Farmers

Foster-Caviness believes that a strong local growing community means a higher quality product to our various market partners. That was the idea behind our Friends of Farmers™ program - to establish relationships between our local produce Farmers and the finest Chefs in the area by providing our expertise in vendor screening, food safety, and logistics. The end result is a supply of fresh, seasonal produce that not only helps our customers deliver deliciously fresh food, but also helps our community at large grow into a more prosperous, agricultural region.

If you are interested in becoming a grower for Foster-Caviness, please fill out our contact form and let us know in the Comments section.


Local Produce Listing

In addition to its weekly Market Reports and periodic Inventory Alerts, Foster-Caviness also offers our market partners a Local Produce Listing. Each growing month or season, we provide a guide of locally grown produce that lists all available product and ordering specifics.
