FRESH PRODUCE MARKET IN BELLEVUE, WA
WHAT'S NEW AT THE MARKET
Come see what's fresh at our produce market in Bellevue, WA! For over 30 years, Newcastle Fruit & Produce Co. has been offering an exceptional selection of quality fruits and veggies picked at peak ripeness, with a focus on local. Throughout the season, we offer a selection of unique, hard-to-find fruits and vegetables that you won't see anywhere else.
A new crop of fresh-picked honeycrisp apples from Othello, WA just landed at the market! They taste as good as they look, too: sweet, crisp, and juicy.
We have them in unwaxed in totes for $.99/lb. What a great way to ease into fall!
We're loading up the bins with our favorites, starting with these squash varieties from Othello: Acorn, Butternut, Delicata, Kabocha, Long Island Cheese, Marina de Chioggia, and Spaghetti squash, with more on the way.
Learn about the different kinds of winter squash on our Squash Market page.
O'Henry peaches are a sweet way to savor the last days of summer. They're a large and sweet free stone peach that's excellent for eating fresh, canning, freezing, baking and even grilling. We'll have them for a limited time in September.
Don't miss them!
HOW TO CHOOSE A RIPE PEACH
1. Follow the seam of the peach to the bottom of the fruit (stem end).
2. Hold the peach between your thumb and fore, middle, or small finger.
3. Press VERY GENTLY with your thumb at the stem end of the fruit ONLY. If the flesh has some "give", it's ripe and ready to eat.
4. AROMA: A ripe peach should be fragrant and make your mouth water.
5. COLOR: Look for an overall golden background color - not pale or green.
PLUMS AND PLUOTS
THEY'RE IN PEAK SEASON
Black, red, and Italian plums plus a variety of pluots and nectaplums are at their peak at the market.
If you've never tried a pluot, you're in for a treat. A cross between a plum and an apricot, pluots have all the sweet-tartness of a plum plus the soft floral flavor notes of an apricot. These are truly a summer highlight for us.
LOCAL YAKIMA TOMATOES
Nothing comes close to a sun-ripened tomato from eastern Washington! Bursting with flavor, Yakima tomatoes are the stuff BLT dreams are made of! We have both beefsteak tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes.
Season's almost over. Get yours before they're gone!
SWEET SUMMER CORN
We still have a good supply of sweet corn. Fresh from the fields in Othello, this corn is supersweet and needs absolutely no seasoning whatsoever!
