A Week in the Life of a Vegetable: Locally Sourced with Southeastern Grocers

Getting to the Roots of Southeastern Grocers’ Locally Sourced Produce

While heat and humidity are not my cup of tea, the warm weather and long days of summer mark prime growing season for locally sourced southern crops.  So, what better time to spend a week touring family-owned farms that provide Southeastern Grocers (BI-LO, Harveys and Winn-Dixie) with fresh, locally sourced produce at prime ripeness.   To add to the excitement, award-winning chef Curtis Stone – a longtime advocate for locally sourced, in-season produce – accompanied the group, along with produce associates from around the company, to learn more about the art of growing produce.  From a squash and zucchini farm in the foothills of South Carolina, to pepper and cucumber farms and a peach orchard in central Georgia – we had a grand time photographing this unique tour for the good folks of Southeastern Grocers!

Despite the sweltering summer heat, it was a true pleasure to spend the week with the fine men and women who work so hard to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to our tables.  It was immensely informative and a grand ol’ time.  Of course, having a Corvette for the week courtesy of Avis didn’t hurt either…  But more on that soon!

Fun and Fancy at the Amelia Farmer’s Market

Last weekend, we again spent some time with the wonderful folks of Amelia Island.  Our first shoot of the day was for the Amelia Farmer’s Market.  To be honest, the weather wasn’t very ideal – it was cold and drizzly much of the morning – but that didn’t stop many of the die-hard vendors or shoppers from coming buy to shop for fresh produce, local delicacies and great gifts.  The market has recently moved to the Amelia Island Plantation, where the ancient live oaks shade guests as they stroll along the winding lanes. As is often the case with small town events, everyone was super nice and it was so wonderful to see so many people catching up while they walked along the market, sipping their coffee and listening to the great live music.

Below are some of our favorite shots from the day – enjoy!
