Pineapple guava $.99#

Organic apples - many varieties $1.39#

Recently visited Rainbow Grocery and got sticker shock looking at organic persimmons for $4#. Imwalle Gardens in Santa Rosa currently has a glut of Hachiyas and Fuyu persimmons for $1.19#.

They grow their own, cut out the middleman, and share with the community at great prices. Some of the produce, like the local Rome apples, seems to come from other local farms, gardens and orchards. Other produce is commercially grown.

If you do get there, look around, they've a small, but essential organics section that includes fruit and veggies.

Sorry I forgot to report their incredibly lush and long lasting fig season.
