Envy Apples available now at Foodland!

We’re working with farmers who think the same way we do here at Foodland - that taste is number one.

So the fruit that you’ll find in our stores this summer will be the sweetest fruit available anywhere. The sweetest apples, cherries, berries, melons, peaches, pineapples, and a whole lot more that your family will ... more »
