The season for fresh fruits and vegetables is here. Fernbridge Fruit Stand has heard the call and opened for the season. The stand is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will be open until Labor Day.

Currently it has fresh apricots, mangos, cherries, strawberries, tomatoes, avocados, oranges, and lemons.

In addition to the fresh fruit the stand carries a variety of dried fruit or vegetable chips made with non-hydrogenated canola oil, dextrin and sea salt. There is also an assortment of nuts shelled and in the shell.

Fernbridge Fruit Stand will be getting peaches, nectarines, plumcots, pears, assorted melons and local vegetables.

All items are sold by the basket or lugs with reasonable pricing. All items are from San Joaquin County and local growers. New items arrive on Saturdays.
