||At Chongo’s Produce Market, we pride ourselves in offering a wide selection of the highest quality local and international produce. We have aligned ourselves with growers who are experts in their fields. A well-established network of growers in the Okanagan, lower mainland, and hot house growers in Alberta and B.C. feed our supply of the freshest fruits and vegetables available in Calgary. We view our network of growers as our partners and we are committed to the sustainable development of our relationships. Regular weekly contact with many growers situated across western Canada gives us the ability to offer seasonal products the moment they are ready for retail sales.
The management of Chongo’s takes quality seriously. We trust that if we offer you the best quality product at prices that are fair, and often lower than major retail for a similar product, you will remain a loyal Chongo’s customer. To achieve low pricing and the highest quality standard we make regular trips directly to the fields in which our product offerings are grown. Whether it is a wide selection of berries from the lower mainland from Berry Haven Farms, or any one of 25 different varieties of cherries from the Okanagan, Chongo’s representatives have been right to the orchard or field to select the product we want on our shelves.
Visiting our growers on a regular basis ensures that we know what we will be offering in advance of the product arriving at our store. Because we go to this extent, we consistently have the high quality you rely on when purchasing.
Our international product offerings complement our local products. Although our mandate is to offer product as local as possible, sometimes seasonal restrictions or quality considerations make it necessary to obtain product from the United States, Mexico or elsewhere. You can be sure that we have sourced out the best option and have made the best decision we can to offer you the best product available.
We believe that being involved in the community and giving back is an important aspect of being a good corporate citizen, so we contribute to The Mustard Seed, Impact Society, and Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids. As a local merchant we want to give back to the community that we have been fortunate to serve and gain the trust of for over two decades.
