Our Tradition of Quality, Value & Service

The building where Tri-County Produce is located was built in 1950 for Harry Bowman. For years, Harry distributed wholesale produce to the tri-counties, delivering to restaurants, schools and stores.

In 1976, Harry Bowman sold the business to Virgil and Marie Eliot, who decided to open Tri-County Produce to the public. They sold it to Jim Dixon and his son, John, in 1985.

Jim Dixon was raised on his father's farm in Eastern Canada. As a young boy, he worked the farm where they grew and harvested many fruits and vegetables. Jim and his father would pick the produce and load it on a wagon which was hitched to a team of horses. In this way, they transported their fresh picked produce to the local market for sale. Jim has been in the produce and grocery business all his life.

John Dixon has been in the food business for over 35 years. John's motto, "We are here to serve the customer," has been his guiding principle. For John, keeping the customer satisfied is his #1 priority.

Together, Jim and John grew Tri-County Produce for over 30 years until Jim passed away in 2016. Now John carries the tradition forward with his dedicated crew.

Growing Our Community

At Tri-County Produce, we understand that a business is only as healthy as the community it serves.
That's why part of our core mission is ongoing support for local community non profit organizations.
We can all help sustain and nurture our community by serving those who are in greatest need.
Our 'Bring Your Own Bag' program has raised over $20,000 for local charities.
Bring in your own reusable grocery bag and Tri-County Produce will donate 5¢ to local community non profit organizations.
