Did you know that North Carolina supplies 40% of the nation’s sweet potatoes? Did you know that we grow SIX types of blueberries in North Carolina?
We can’t help but share these fun facts because WE LOVE LOCAL!
This weekend, we were so excited to be one of the sponsors for the Got To Be NC Festival at the state fairgrounds in Raleigh. We set up an interactive veggie-filled booth to talk to potential and current members who share our passion for North Carolina and show them the local produce we offer each week.
We were also excited to see several of our artisan partners, like Uncle Chris’ Pimento Cheese and Little Black Dressing Co., who had booths near us!
The Got To Be NC Festival was an excellent way to showcase our appreciation and support for the foods and agriculture of North Carolina.
So, THANK YOU. Those are two simple words we hear every day from our farm and artisan food partners and are passing on to you today. They know you have lots of choices when you make your grocery list each week, and we all appreciate that you support The Produce Box and North Carolina farmers.
