About Us

For more than 100 years, J.W. Lopes and the Kotzen family brought a farm-to-table approach to the wholesale produce business in the Greater Boston area. The Kotzen’s have become known for providing fresh premium produce to restaurants, institutions, and grocers.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kotzen family is proud to have launched New England Country Mart (NECM) in March 2020. NECM is a direct-to-consumer grocery delivery platform that serves Greater Boston, Cape Cod, and Rhode Island.

The NECM commitment to quality and community:

The entire NECM team takes extraordinary steps to ensure customers receive top-notch service alongside fresh, premium, restaurant-quality groceries. NECM always offers produce sourced from passionate, reputable, and trusted growers while curating a platform that has a massive emphasis on local businesses.

At NECM Safety comes first:

We insist our growers and warehouse handlers adhere to rigorous safety measures at all times. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have further ramped up safety measures as we continue to follow strict protocols and procedures instructed by the CDC and World Health Organization.
