Green Beans Recipes

What's so cool about our Greens Beans (Beside the fact that they're frozen)?

Green Beans are a great source of fiber, protein, vitamins like A, C, K, B6, and minerals inclkuding calcium, iron, manganese, and potassium.

And when you purchase the NFCA's Northeast Grown Frozen Fruits & Vegetables, you are not only making a good decision for yourself and your family, you are helping to grow the regional food system and economy. Our frozen Blueberries, Organic Broccoli, Organic Edamame, Organic Green Beans, and non-GMO Sweet Corn are all produced, picked, processed and packed (say that five times fast) right here in the Northeast. And they are available only at your local Neighboring Food Co-op. They're easy to find: they're packed in a clear package so you can see what's inside!
