The fourth-generation Bradford’s take great pride in offering high quality home-grown produce.    Located on Hwy. 73 in Huntersville, North Carolina, this registered historic landmark brings you back to the good old days of fresh, local, hand-prepared, and hand-selected foods at fair prices.  They offer a huge selection of imported, organic and naturally grown local produce.
