The Growers Produce Auction is a wholesale produce auction supplied with fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, and nursery stock by local growers. The auction is a great market for wholesale buyers such as roadside stands, grocery stores, and restaurants. Small lot are also sold for anyone interested in household consumption or canning.
The auction method is the fairest way to purchase the fresh produce as the prices are controlled in a true supply and demand environment. Produce is picked fresh, just hours before the sale by growers within a 100 mile radius of the auction. These suppliers ranger from large commercial growers to small gardeners with surplus product.
Pack restrictions are in place to keep the product as uniform as possible. Large buyers can take advantage of an experienced order buyer for 3 percent charge. Sellers are assigned a permanent number to enable buyers to purchase more consistently.
