All Local All The Time!
Every product we carry in the market comes direct from Norfolk County. We believe that local is better and we love that this means we can support so many great friends in the community. We also want our customers to feel they can get all the best in one location. We carry a wide variety of products and we are always growing to make sure you can stock up for any occasion at Wholesome Pickins!
Fruits and Vegetables
To compliment our delicious strawberries and raspberries we visit a ton of local farmers to stock up on the best produce you’ll find anywhere. We carry virtually everything grown in Norfolk County, and we pick it up fresh daily. All of our farm partners can be found on our Norfolk’s Best page. Each farm has a unique story and all of us are proud that our families can bring your family unsurpassed produce. Check our Produce Availability Guide to when produce is typically available.
