Produce Junction

A problem many people face with healthy foods is they’re often not as accessible and affordable as processed options like frozen or canned foods. Often, health food markets gravitate toward high-income suburban areas. That being said, a visit to Produce Junction just might change your mind. With high quality produce, seasonal selections and a variety of daily specials, finding fresh fruits and veggies is easier than ever. With locations in Wilmington, Dover and several over the line in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, it’s a convenient stop for most Delawareans.

Check out the bakery for sweets, breads and apple cider donuts, browse a variety of quality products you won’t find at the grocery store, or order a delicious ready-made lunch. Plus, visit the Dewey Beach location for local fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, cheeses, honey and more.
