Best Produce within 30 mi of New Haven

persec | Jun 6, 2008 10:07 AM

I've lived in New Haven for almost two years and I've been continuously disappointed with the produce offerings in local grocery stores. I've found that Nica has a good selection, but vegetables that are less commonly available, like golden beets and Jerusalem artichokes, often aren't very fresh. In a moment of desperation, I drove up to the Whole Foods in West Hartford, where the selection didn't fare much better. I'm not looking for the exotic-- just fresh and tasty, although it wouldn't hurt if someone could tell me who carries mâche on a regular basis.
