Cherry Sprout Produce was born from Big City Produce. Big City Produce operated in the same location for 11 years with the mission of serving the produce needs of North Portland’s African American community. When Hugh Gray of Big City Produce decided to go out of business in late 2007, two long-time employees stepped in to keep this community business healthy & strong. Knowing the importance of a neighborhood store, we strive to keep the spirit of Big City going. Cherry Sprout provides soul food staples and a wide selection of local greens whenever possible while simultaneously striving to satisfy the needs of our new neighborhood shoppers. We are keeping a neighborhood staple alive and well, bringing you fresh healthy affordable foods, and providing a welcoming environment for art, music, and community events.
Cherry Sprout, offering produce sourced locally whenever possible, staple grocery items, bulk foods, soul food ingredients, vegan, gluten free & vegetarian options, garden & canning essentials, beer & wine and more!
