About the vendor
Organicgirl is a small group of women and men in California's fertile Salinas Valley who want to offer the best organic produce ever offered.
They created the name organicgirl because they wanted something that had a sense of youth and promise and freshness about it. And they wanted to make real sure you know they're an organic only company. And once they chose the name, something dawned on them: Who is organicgirl? Both men and women alike who enjoy healthy, fresh, sustainable produce grown in harmony with Mother Nature. We're all organicgirls. In fact, they have it on good authority that Mother Nature is an organicgirl, too.
Their desire is to always be seen as offering the very best quality produce done the right way. This means unique approaches to organic growing, it means rejecting produce that just isn't good enough, it means triple washing their salads, it means using earth-friendly 100% recycled plastic packaging, it means a real focus on getting our produce to your store as fast as possible, and it means offering products that are a bit different in some way that matters to you.
