Kowalski's Produce Department is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality produce in the market. We do this by choosing local and organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible while demanding freshness and exclusive products from our vendor partners.
Quality & Freshness
Kowalski's seeks quality over all else, which means we buy only the highest grades possible. For example, while other grocers settle for Fancy grade apples, Kowalski's demands Extra Fancy grade from the best growing areas in the world, like Washington State and New Zealand. We also carry exclusive high-quality products that you can't get anywhere else such as Cornerstone Fruit, export-grade stone fruit only available at Kowalski's.
Quality also means being fresh. Our vendor partners, such as Russ Davis and J&J, deliver to us every day, ensuring that from field to refrigerator, no produce gets there faster than the farm-fresh fruits and vegetables you will find at Kowalski's. We have the highest quality standards which all our produce must meet in order to be fit for your table.
At Kowalski's we proudly partner with many local producers whenever possible. Instead of buying from across the world, we work with both large local growers like Untiedt Farms and small local farmers in our stores' neighborhoods to ensure maximum freshness. We visit these farms and build a relationship with them based on trust. This allows us to choose the cleaners and highest quality produce grown right here in Minnesota.
Organic Fruits & Vegetables
Kowalski's believes that fresh produce is the centerpiece of healthy eating, and we choose organic over conventional whenever our quality standards are met. We have an extensive organic section with the highest variety counts in the Twin Cities. Organic experts from J&J Distributing are in the stores several times a week to provide one-of-a-kind customer service and quality control.
Our friendly produce staff is highly trained with the experience and knowledge to give you the best service in the Twin Cities. We are proud to let you taste the difference and offer samples of new and seasonal items as soon as they become available. The most delicious items are highlighted by a "Manager's Pick" sign. Our creative staff also makes an assortment of unique and custom fruit baskets upon request.
We also feature our own Signature Products line. These are items we have tested ourselves, and we are proud to put our name on them.
