At Food City we strive to bring the highest quality products to our customers. That is why Food City has partnered with local farmers to provide the freshest produce possible. These locally grown fruits and vegetables are picked at the height of quality and delivered directly to our stores, in many instances the day they were picked. Our Freshville events are much like Farmer’s Markets, giving the community an opportunity to sample the finest, freshest locally grown produce at great prices! In Freshville you will find a wide array of locally grown produce such as corn, half runner beans, Grainger County tomatoes and squash.
