Maltby Produce Markets, Inc.
About ten years ago, Flower World, our parent company, decided to diversify into the  vegetable and fruit production.  The demand for local produce was starting to take a foothold and the demand for locally produced vegetables and fruits was expanding rapidly.  Since Flower World's growers and staff had over 40 years experience in the plant production it seemed just one small step further to expand into the food production.  The greater demand for local produce, with minimal food mileage, seemed to be developing, so it was the natural next step for us.  You will find these wonderful fresh selections of produce, fruit, herbs and other products at our Market.   The English cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplants and peppers are produced in covered greenhouses.  Most of the other produce is grown in the fields.  Therefore, we are able to harvest and prepare the vegetables daily, assuring you the freshest quality.  It is not unlikely that you will find a beautiful head of Red Leaf lettuce displayed in the Market, that was still growing in the fields ten minutes earlier!  Look for the'Maltby Grown' labels identifying the products grown by us.


An extensive selection of potted herbs is available during the Spring and Summer months in the attached greenhouse.  Fresh herbs are grown and harvested daily in several fields behind the Market and at several other locations.  Need fresh cilantro, basil leaves, oregano, thyme, dill, bay laurel, lemon verbena...we have it all!  Fresh eggs are gathered twice a day from our free range laying hens.  You can actually walk through the herb and vegetable fields to the chicken coops to see our flock in action.  There are also peacocks, pheasants, ducks, goats and sheep to entertain you!!  Bring your kids/grandchildren, they would love to see the animals in action!


With the growing concern and the desire to eat healthier and fresher foods, with the enthusiasm and excitement of preparing different and more exotic dishes, you owe it to yourself and your family to come out and check us out.  If you like the 'healthy approach' than make us your weekly fresh produce stop!
