Quality Seasonal Produce Introduced Gourmet, Only at AgriExotic!

We know when you are cooking gourmet meals and developing menus how important it is to use high-quality seasonal produce. That was why AgriExotic got started in the first place, to support our restaurant neighbors into healthily, flavorfully realizing their visions. That is why we have plenty of produce available during the seasons. All of our products are dependent on region, giving a dish a sweet and savory appeal. Even though the holiday seasons have wrapped up and the New Year has passed, we know that winter produce is still in demand with our local owners and chefs. Here are some trends we have noticed.

As one of the most popular mushrooms to include in a meal, button mushrooms are the more immature cousins of some of the heavier hitters out there, like porcinis and portabellas. However, the button mushroom has a secret weapon. Its earthy taste and mild umami flavor makes it an incredibly deft ingredient. It can be easily and cheaply incorporated into a wide range of recipes, without skimping on taste and deliciousness. We have seen chefs purchase these as part of a blend with other mushrooms, since it can bulk up shroomy orders, without breaking the budget.

Pay Attention to our Seasonal Produce Page

We don’t just cover winter. We cover all the months within winter. Same goes for spring, summer, and fall. We also know that not all winter produce is created equally. Some seasonal produce floats in and out of season at different times. That’s why we always break our seasonal offerings down by month, not by quarter. We also post these updates to our social media for quick, easy access to seasonal info. Wee can also special order harder to find ingredients for the discerning chef. Regardless of whether you are on the hunt for the freshest seasonal product or need something outside the box, we have you covered rain or shine.
