Supplying Syracuse with Farm Fresh Produce for over 90 years.
Our tradition of selling quality fresh produce in Syracuse began over 90 years ago with the establishment of Hafner Brother’s Farm in 1922. We believe produce tastes best when its farm fresh; so we begin our produce season in mid-June when homegrown strawberries come into season. As more and more homegrown produce becomes available we continue to partner with local farmers to carry only the best homegrown produce CNY has to offer.
The produce season continues thru the CNY fall harvest finishing up in Mid-November.
Our homegrown produce is harvested and delivered daily to the store ensuring our customers have the freshest produce available. The displays are set up every morning and we continue to sort and stock them throughout the day. This gives our customers the best selection of homegrown produce in the Syracuse area.
We also carry a wide range of fruits and vegetables that are hand selected daily by our produce buyer. From delicious fresh Pennsylvania peaches, to mouthwatering cantaloupes and sweet nectarines, when it is in season and fresh it’s at Chuck Hafner’s.
