Living in Southern California, we are lucky enough to have an incredible variety of local produce available to us year round. However, our seasons still dictate that the juiciest most delectable tomato comes at the end of summer, while those satisfying mysterious root vegetables will be at their best in the winter.
It has been estimated that the average American meal travels 1500 miles from farm to plate. beachgreens challenges this notion by delivering only local produce at the height of its season. All of beachgreens produce is grown within 300 miles of Long Beach. Supporting a local economy and decreasing fossil fuel use are just some of the reasons for eating locally produced food—it’s just fresher and tastes better!
In addition, beachgreens works with many local vendors to offer add-on items. We believe that an interconnected web of local businesses working together make us all stronger. Some of our vendors include:
Honey Pacifica (processed in Long Beach, some bees kept in Seal Beach, CA)
Shortnin' Bread (an artisan baking company that strives to bring customers unique & handmade products from their kitchen using local & organic ingredients when ever possible. It is our goal to provide the highest quality artisan made baked products!!)
Crustic Breads Bread loaves are handmade with sustainable, organic, and local ingredients, baked in traditional cast iron pots, and delivered fresh daily.
