AKA Freshpoint Connecticut, is a produce wholesaler in
You're unlikely to find anything unusually exotic here, but there's
still plenty of great organic, conventional, and locally grown food at
I've occasionally found some interesting stuff here like unusual
varieties of papaya that you just don't see in stores.
When living in Connecticut in the winter this is where I buy a great
deal of my produce because local farmers aren't growing anything.
Drive up the the Fowler Produce warehouse and park your car at one of
the loading docks before heading inside to the cash and carry office.
If you don't know what you want, you can get a complete list of
everything they have in stock from the attendant. The annoying problem
is that the list has no prices associated with it. You'll have to ask
the desk attendant for the prices on everything, and because prices
shift so dramatically due to freezes, exceptionally good weather, etc,
it's worth asking.
You can pay with cash, a check, or a credit or card, and the attendant
will call one of the dock workers over go get your order. They'll zip
around on their forklift and deliver the boxes to your loading dock and
you're all set.
Connecticut is no fruit hot spot, but places like Fowler make it a lot
cheaper and more enjoyable to get what you need as a raw foodist. I'd
suggest you check them out if you're in the area.
