July Produce Guide

Corn, cherries, cucumbers and grapes in a basket

July is the perfect season for backyard BBQs, pool parties and everything else fun in the sun. We have put together a basket full of perfect snacking and fresh fruits and veggies that will be ripe all month long.

Cherries are the superfood of summer. They contain vitamin c and a ton of fiber with no fat or cholesterol. Use them in your favorite cherry pie recipe or snack on them all by themselves.

Cucumbers contain nearly every vitamin you need on a daily basis. Because they are so vitamin rich, they are the perfect replacement for a caffeinated soda when you’re tired.

Corn is grown on every continent but one, Antarctica. It is an excellent source of vitamin C, magnesium, and vitamin B. Put corn right on the grill or add them into your favorite salsa.

Blackberries are an extremely versatile berry and contain high amounts of vitamin C and fiber. Add them to your perfect charcuterie or mash them into a jam.
