Local Products

Sourcing products from local growers and producers is very important at Common Ground.  Many are surprised at the wide selection of local products we carry.  Fresh local produce is available much of the year since local farms have started using hoop houses.  Locally produced eggs, milks, cheeses, meats, honey, and breads are a big draw for our customers.

Some of our local products:
