OUR OWN COMMUNITY STORE
We opened our first grocery store in November 2017 in the Winter Hill neighborhood of Somerville! Click below to read about our journey.
ABOUT OUR NEIGHBORS
As long-time residents of Winter Hill we're committed to providing fresh food to the neighborhood.
Everyone deserves access to healthy food.
We source produce and other items locally and nationally to give you the best options.
Along with fresh fruits and vegetables we'll carry everyday staples in our bulk section to reduce unnecessary packaging.
We opened our first brick-and-mortar location on Medford Street in the Winter Hill neighborhood, mid-November of 2017. About 75% of the funds we used to open the store came from our neighbors and friends in Winter Hill through a successful Kickstarter Campaign in June of 2016.
During the Summer and Fall of 2016 we partnered with the Winter Hill Brewing Company, and held pop-up produce markets in their parking lot each weekend. These markets allowed us to begin providing much needed fresh fruits and vegetables to the neighborhood, and connect with the community.
Rather than focus on boxed and canned grocery items, 75% of our inventory will be fresh produce. Neighborhood Produce is a place where a neighbor can stop in and quickly grab everything for a healthy meal - fruits and veggies, protein, pasta, rice and spices - without needing to go to a large supermarket.
We support and encourage the local farming community that surrounds Boston. Each year this community becomes larger and more diverse as people realize the value of locally grown produce. We will carry all the delicious seasonal fruits and vegetables – from apples to zucchini – that New England has to offer.
AS NATURE INTENDED
Every day millions of pounds of beautiful, nutritious produce is deemed unworthy due to the high cosmetic standards of today’s grocery industry. At Neighborhood Produce, we think these fruits and veggies are the way nature intended them to be, and we are happy to provide them for the community at affordable prices.
