Good Food - Good People

GFGP functions as an aggregator for over thirty fresh produce farms in the New River and Roanoke Valleys, as well as for many producers of other quality farm-origin foods. Our suppliers custom-harvest fresh veggies and fruits within 48 hours of delivery to our CSA sharers, five major area farmers markets, restaurants, retail stores and institutions in Roanoke, Blacksburg, Daleville and Floyd VA. Certified organic or biologically-grown vegetable sources are prioritized; unsprayed and low-spray fruit sources are preferred whenever possible. GFGP operates on a consistent schedule year round, highlighting greenhouse and hydroponic crops throughout the winter season, as well as a full slate of field and season-extension crops in peak growing season. All products are sourced from growers we know and trust within 100 miles of our Floyd home-base. Enjoy our fresh fruits, vegetables and eggs through our CSA FarmShares. Fresh produce, meats and cheeses can also be purchased at 5 area farmer markets (Grandin Market, Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and West End Community Market in Roanoke, Blacksburg YMCA Center Tuesday Market, and Floyd Farmers Market) or pre-ordered in bulk through our virtual market program, A La Carte. We offer wholesale distribution to restaurants, institutions and retail stores.

This is our first season receiving veggies from a CSA and we LOVE it! We spend 1/2 as much on produce this season as we would if we were purchasing everything from the grocery and have the added benefit of supporting our local farmers.... [more]
