Our search for the best quality produce begins right in our own backyard. Here at FreshPoint, we want you to see the kind of folks we keep company with. For decades we have been supporting local farms by buying their products, assisting them with food safety, and helping them build a sustainable food system. To help celebrate this, we have created our "Eat Carolina Fresh" local initiative.
