Produce & Garden
Honest Weight's selection of organic, natural, and local produce in the Capital District is huge - and affordable.
Local farming is important to us and we buy as much as possible from farmers within a 100 mile radius of our store. But to provide the quality and variety of local foods our customers expect, we also purchase from farms within a 250 mile radius as necessary. This not only expands the number of local, family farms we support, but provides our customers with a bigger variety of healthy, nutritious, environmentally friendly local grown foods.

Of course, not all produce can be found locally - we have yet to find an upstate banana grower! But whatever produce we offer, locally grown or imported, Honest Weight will always have a sign and/or label on each product telling you where and how it was grown. That way you'll know if the bell pepper you buy is from Schenectady - or Holland - and whether or not it was organically grown.
Just as we do our best to offer a large selection of local and organic produce, the Co-op also works hard to keep our prices as reasonable as possible. As a result, our organic prices are often very close to those of conventionally grown produce, helping all our customers eat healthier, more nutritious foods.
Great food at affordable prices - that's what Honest Weight provides our customers year round. Even in the cold of winter, our produce department has far more local products than any other store in the Capital District - and the choices increase on a regular basis. Our local apple selection alone includes more than 50 or 60 varieties a year.
And one more thing: if you still can't find what you want, just ask. We will gladly special order almost anything that's available.
