Great spring-time news here in Bend….The Vegetable Man fruit and veggie stand is now open for the season in Bend! If you’ve been in Bend for any amount of time, you’ve probably already stopped here and discovered the deliciousness found inside the large white tents on the corner of South 3rd St & Reed Lane (across the street from Fred Meyer). The Vegetable Man has been in business here in Bend since 1983, and has become a trusted supplier of some of the freshest local produce around! You don’t stay in business that long unless you are doing things right!
If you are new to Bend, or are planning a move here, make The Vegetable Man one of your first grocery stops! I drove by for months, always curious about it, never stopping. I thought there would probably be a limited variety, the quality would be lacking, or the prices would be outrageous. Boy was I wrong!!! Just look at these fresh Oregon strawberries!
Finally, one day I stopped in and I was amazed at the abundance of fruit and vegetables available…at prices comparable if not lower than many local grocery stores! So many varieties, and so fresh coming from local farms, even options for the organic lover!
This instantly became a weekly stop for me. I only wished I had stopped sooner to enjoy some of the freshest fruits and veggies in Bend all season!
For the fruit lover, The Vegetable Man offers everything from apples & berries…
To melons, bananas, oranges & pineapples!
Plus, they offer an impressive selection of veggies! Celery, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, kale, avocados, potatoes, onions, green beans, asparagus and the list goes on and on…they even have jicama!
Oh, and did I mention they have local honey?
And beautiful hanging floral baskets to spruce up your garden!
The Vegetable Man is open every year in the spring through mid to late October, when you can find an impressive selection of fall squash, gourds, and pumpkins!
As if that isn’t enough, I found the most beautiful Christmas tree I’ve ever had at their Christmas tree lot! Be sure to check back once the holidays roll around! They operate 4 Christmas tree stands around Bend and open the day after Thanksgiving every year.
Do yourself and your family a favor and stop by The Vegetable Man to score some of the freshest local produce in Bend! Now that’s Living the Bend Life!
