Fresh Produce

Best Produce, Period.

Triple Checked freshness 

Our Fresh Produce Promise


Cub strives to offer customers the best produce period. From taste to size, we work hard to ensure each piece of produce is of the highest quality. We source our produce from the best growers in the industry, including local growers whenever possible. We triple check every crate and carton for quality and freshness—in the field, at the warehouse, and once it reaches the store. We also try to minimize the time the produce takes to travel from the farm to the store, so you can bring the freshest produce period home to your kitchen. Love it or we’ll replace it and refund your money. That’s our produce promise.

  • Our Avocados & Limes Last 2x Longer!

    It's thanks to Apeel! Here's how it works: Apeel’s plant-derived solution slows water loss and oxidation, which extends the shelf life of avocados. As a result, fewer go to waste. Apeel avocados reduce food waste from farm to table, ensuring that more of the avocados grown are consumed.

    Because less food is wasted, this means less resources are wasted, including: Farm inputs, water, energy, land use, transportation, refrigeration and packing.

    A Life Cycle Assessment was conducted on Apeel Avocadoes, and results indicate that they require up to 42 grams less GHG emissions and 14 liters less water per avocado. Learn more at!

Say Hello to our Local Farmers

Did you know that our stores are stocked with produce that's grown just miles away from your Cub store? We love supporting our community, and because of this, we work with Minnesota farmers to bring you the freshest, most flavorful produce direct from their fields to your cart.

Give a hearty Minnesota hello to Brian and Leslie Axdahl of Axdahl's Garden Farm & Greenhouse in Stillwater! Axdahl's roadside stand has been a fixture in Stillwater for over three decades, and Brian Axdahl, co-owner along with Leslie Axdahl, says he first got in the business when he was just a kid selling corn and pumpkins he'd pick at the end of his road. The Axdahls take pride in the fact that their vegetables—like snap beans, strawberries, watermelons, sweet corn and more—are picked daily by their locally-based farm team for the ultimate freshness.
