Local Farm Report Fresh Veggies

Short & Sweet: Locally Grown Farm Report

Sweet corn is still going strong this week, thanks to Witten Farm, located in Lowell, Ohio, who provides us with this flavorful summer favorite this time of year. And new this week we have beets, tomatoes and several varieties of cabbage. Did you know that around mid-summer a large portion of our produce section is locally grown? Look for a large display of local produce in the front of the Produce Department at your Heinen’s, as well as signs on other local fruit and veggies throughout. While we carry Local Produce year-round, our Produce Department transforms into a local Farmer’s Market each summer thanks to our relationships with our Ohio farmers (some of whom have been supplying us with tasty fruits and veggies for three generations!)

We’ll keep you updated on what’s available from these and other farms as the season goes on with your Locally Grown Farm Report! (Availability may vary from store to store depending on weather conditions and demand.)
