Specialty Produce (Seasonal)

Black Diamond Watermelons

Our Black Diamond watermelons are by far, one of our most-requested produce items in the spring and summer seasons. This fruit has an elongated shape with a green/black rine and bright red flesh on the inside! We love these watermelons since they are much sweeter than their traditional counterparts. Come & get them while you can – they don’t stay on the shelf long!

Southern, IL Grown Peaches

You’d think we imported our peaches right from Georgia, but they are grown right here in Southern, IL! Our homegrown peaches are large, juicy, and requested just as frequently as our Black Diamond watermelon. Stop by and pick up one for a treat or a whole basket for a peach pie before we’re all sold out!
