Without a doubt, it is the best place to shop for fresh, reasonably priced produce in the Seattle area. Better than Pike Place Market. I have been getting my produce there for the past several years during the growing season. When people eat at my house they almost always comment on the produce I serve. The corn and green beans are EXCEPTIONAL. The lettuces actually have FLAVOR, not like the junk you get at the grocery store.... and the apples. My family waits all year for the Carpinito apples. Wow. I love that place.

My boyfriend and I made several trips to Carpinito's over the Memorial Day weekend and had no trouble with the loaders. They stopped to ask me if we needed help, directed us to the right place to get our sand & topsoil and hopped out to estimate our load without thinking twice. They were equally friendly to my boyfriend and me - so it wasn't a preferential-treatment-because-I'm-a-girl thing.

They have a great selection of plants at half the cost of Home Depot. Anyone who buys bags of sand or topsoil needs to rethink that strategy. We saved $100s by getting ours in bulk here.

I went to Carpinitos with a small trailer for a yard of topsoil. I parked next to the pile of topsoil. The loader driver honked and drove the loader the 25 feet over to my rig and told me that I couldn't park there. I told him I wanted some topsoil, and where could I park with a trailer. He said he didn't care where I parked and that I could park on the street for all he cared. I told him that was bull$%^& and that I was going elsewhere. I later phone the company and reported the incident and informed them that I would never ocme back.

I have to agree with the people saying the tractor drivers are rude.
I have had to wait for a long period of time to get a load of bark even when I'm the only one waiting and the driver's attitude is often rude.
On the other hand the produce is usually very good and they often have excellent prices on their basil bunches.

I began shopping @ Carpinitos about 3 years ago, and believe that its the BEST quality produce in the area by far. The prices are unbelievablly low because their farm is right down the road. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere created by the employees in the store itself. They are ridiculously busy weekends during the summer, and yet the girls up front are always smiley, and very helpful.
As for the service dog isssue, I have seen their signs posted every where that no animals are allowed. And working in the food industry, I know that they, like any other business, have health dept. regulations to follow, or pay fines as a result. Food is food, whether its raw produce or something fully cooked on a pretty plate. I know there are many people who need and use service dogs for their diabilities, and there are many who take advantage of loopholes and gray areas of the law not because of necessity, but because they can. Sounds like the writer of that review is probably one of them. And I for one, will continue to ENJOY shopping at Carpinitos for as long as their in Kent!!!!

I agree there plant and vegetable selection is great but its true when you pick up bark or other materials it is less than any other place, I know I am a contractor, and the drivers of the tractors are very rude.

I've been shopping at Carpinitos for several years, but a recent visit had me compelled to share. During a recent trip here, a rather rude blonde female employee attempted to deny access to woman with a service dog. The Americans with Disabilities Act is briefly outlined as follows.

1. A business cannot question a person about their disability.

2. You cannot deny a service dog entrance to a public venue (She was told not only to not bring the dog inside, but to steer clear of the food area- what "food"? Raw produce? Come on, give me a break).

Futhermore, this particular worker incorrectly assumed that all service dogs were walked on leashes. Not true, as many service dogs are small and are in fact, carried.

Review the laws, Carpinitos. The next person you deny could be the one who slaps you with a lawsuit. A lawsuit, you most certainly will not win.

What a great place to get the best of the season's produce! Their selection is great, and the prices are right. The variety is usually outstanding, and the quality and freshness make it a pleasure to shop here. Their flowers are also wonderful.

PROS: Great selection of fresh produce, and convenient location
CONS:

I enjoy going to Carpenito's in the summer and buying their fruits and vegetables. Is is also the place we get our bark in the spring. It has competitive pricing and is easy to pick up.

Carpinito Brothers is a great locally owned business. Their flowers and produce are great and the workers are very helpful in planning out what type of flowers to buy for your yard.

If you haven't seen the bark pile in Kent, you're missing out. In the Springtime, it's got to be the highest point in K-town. Seriously, they meet almost all your landscaping needs in a friendly manner, and there's plenty of help on hand to take care of you.

If you need the best local quality plants, year after year, Carpinito Brothers Farm is the best. Their stock seems to be the largest and if you need bark, their prices are hard to beat.

I've read some of the reviews for Carpinito Brothers Farm and would agree with the positive remarks regarding their produce and plant selections. However, I have purchased bark on two separate occasions and both times I have felt like I was an inconvenience for the tractor operator. I was yelled at for not parking my truck in the correct spot and could barely get a "grunt" let alone a "Thank You" from the driver. As for the "yard" I paid for, it was the smallest ever loaded into my truck. I won't be buying any bark from this business, however I will continue to shop for produce and flowers there, the workers on the side of the shop are Great!

PROS: Great veggies and plants
CONS: Un-appreciative Tractor drivers, small bark loads

My brother lives out in Kent and whenever i visit I make a point of stopping at Carpinito Brothers Farms to load up on in season produce. I do alot of juicing because of the nutritional benefits and this store is a wonderful place to browse and shop. Everything is fresh and inviting. the aromas and sights to behold are delightful. Ii always end up buying things that i had not planned. My gramps especially likes it when I have had the time to bake him his favorite raspberry pie and we have already enjoyed several this summer. i only wish I was able to shop here more often!

Carpinito Brothers offers produce and a nursery. Their produce is good quality and they have good prices. The nurssery is small, but has a good selection of plants, including beautiful hanging baskets. Parking is not a problem. If you have a little one who likes watching machinery, they have huge piles of dirt bark that they also sell and it is fun to watch the machines moving it around.

I go to Carpinito Bros produce market once a week when it opens in April to October. They have a wonderful selection of fruits and vegetables to choose from. The prices are amazing compared to what you get in the grocery store. The produce is of high quality with a flavor that is superior to any I get at the grocery store. They are also a nursery with a nice selection of trees and plants. They also sell bark for the garden.

Their fruits and vegetables are very reasonably priced. Always looks and tastes fresh. Lots of planting items. Lots of flowers. Always check the reduced items in the back. I've gotten some great deals.

This is the place to go for vegetables and fruit in the summer time. Blueberries are huge and sweet. Wait for the berries from their farms instead of "from the south".

When ever I want to buy fresh fuit or veggies, I will stop by here on my lunch break and pick stuff up. There selection is great, the quality is superiour. The service is usually good. Everytime I have been here it is really busy. Every year on Halloween I buy my pumpkin here, there prices are much better than the supermarkets. All year round their prices are better. Even if their prices are a little bit more you know you are supporting local farmers.I like this place! and it has been around for a long time.

I have to admit that Carpenito's fruits and vegetables look very good. However, when I asked one of the owner's if they spray their produce with chemicals, he was kind of rude and didn't give me a direct answer. I am a person that really cares about what I eat. I definitely want to know if Carpenito's spray chemicals on their produce. So far, I haven't had an answer. Until I know for sure that their produce is safe from any chemical sprays, I will not buy any of their products. You all know very well that chemicals, when ingested, cause cancer and other nasty symptoms, in the long run. Good luck to you all.
