The vast majority of both our local and non-local produce is Certified Organic. If it’snot Certified Organic, you can be sure that it is organically grown — and that it was grown by a farm within 150 miles from FBFC (most of the time much closer to home than that). In this way we encourage a way of growing food that uses no chemicals, of transporting food that covers less distance, and of eating and enjoying food that was grown by members of our local community.

When you shop the Produce Department at FBFC you are supporting a healthy body, a healthy local community and economy, and a healthy environment.

FBFC boasts the largest selection of bulk herbs in the Southeast! We’ve got just about every bulk herb, tea, and spice that you could imagine. In addition to the herbs and spices, we have all fair trade coffees, grains, nuts and flours (including rice and flours for those who are on gluten-free diets).

Buying in bulk is one of the most economical ways to shop natural foods! It’s also one of the most Earth-friendly. You save money by not paying for packaging and that’s less cardboard and paper products used in the process. Get more information on our bulk department here.
