Our deli staff are some of the best cooks and bakers in Goshen. They keep our deli case stocked with fresh made, delicious grab and go meal and snack options. They bake fresh bread, muffins, out-of-this-world scones, cookies, lots of other baked goods, and desserts. They also make tasty salads and sandwiches, and from 11-2 every Monday-Friday, their lunch counter is open to take your hot, gourmet sandwich orders. Try one with any of our two fresh daily soups! Everything they make uses the best ingredients available and the deli staff frequently take advantage of our own fantastic produce department as well. We also always have gluten free, and vegan or vegetarian options.

The produce department is committed to bringing you fresh, quality organic and naturally grown produce. From late spring through fall we focus on locally grown produce. Produce that is not available locally is sourced through distributors. Luckily we have an organic produce distributor located 30 miles from the market in Mishawaka, Indiana. B&B Organics sources as much produce as they can from local, fair trade, and small family farms. They visit their farms from Indiana to Mexico, ensuring their sources are legitimate. So we know the items we carry align with our goals of creating healthy people, a healthy planet, and healthy commerce.
What do we mean when we talk about local products? We define local products as coming from within a 100-mile radius of our store. We carry two types of local produce: naturally grown local produce and organically grown local produce. Both types of produce are grown using organic methods, but naturally grown producers don’t go through the USDA’s Organic Certification process. The most common reasons why a farmer chooses to not be certified are the large amounts of paperwork and the cost of certification. We visit the farms that don’t have organic certification to ensure they are using organic methods. If produce is not available locally, we buy certified organic produce from local or national distributors.
