Kids ages 12 and under enjoy a free serving of a fruit or vegetable every time they visit PCC.

Just let the produce staff know what your child would like to try and we'll wash and cut it so it can be eaten while you shop.

Each month, we highlight different fruits and vegetables. Encourage your children to give these items a try and they'll be enjoying a rainbow of produce in no time!
