At Bishops Orchards we bake, prepare and stock fresh food on a daily basis, all year long. We tailor our preparations based on seasonal, and of course, home grown produce. Providing the shoreline with local and artisanal products to support our community has always been a fundamental part of who we are as Farm Market. Come in and chat with our friendly staff!
When you first walk into our Farm Market you will be greeted by fresh produce. From our own asparagus and potted herbs in the spring, to apples right off the tree during the fall, we have items that are grown on-site, and shipped in from local farms so you can be sure your produce is grown fresh. You will find your favorite every day fruits fresh cut into convenient single servings as well as exotic Monster Fruit and whole Pomegranates to inspire a unique fruit salad. Our experienced produce team can tell you anything you need to know about sweet, white and purple potatoes and will help you find the right item for the dish you’re creating. From dried peppers for chile, to fresh herbs for a special soup we have all the special ingredients you need to prepare the meal you crave. This winter we’re celebrating citrus and enjoying the seasonal bounty of grapefruit, oranges and clementines. Add some color to your plate and check out our winter citrus salad recipe for something light and healthful!

We also carry a very unique selection of specialty crackers and spreads to go along with your cheese. Whether you want a simple and classic snack of our very own apples and cheese, or a more formal evening of fondue, we can create the cheese tasting experience for your occasion. From sweet and salty crackers to dried fruit and jams, we have everything you need to build a beautiful spread.

NEW BULK SECTION
At Bishop’s Orchards we are constantly keeping up with food trends and what our valued community is asking for. Having a bulk food set provides an economical option for customers who want to keep their pantry stocked with staple food items for cooking and baking. On March 10th, we launched four new bulk food options in the bulk set, available in bulk food barrels. All USDA Organic we are introducing Rolled Oats, French Lentils, White Quinoa and Brown Basmati Rice. We chose to start with these four products because they are so versatile for cooking and baking and because they are very nutrient dense. Each bulk food ingredient has the nutrition facts and price listed right on the barrel so you can scoop only what you’re going to use at home.
