Local Farm Report Fresh Veggies

Pepper Party: Locally Grown Farm Report

Peppers are in and we kind of want to throw a party. Sure, it may sound like a bit much for a vegetable. But crisp, fresh, green peppers are just so good in the summer that we want to celebrate. Looking for a heartier way to enjoy them? Try this recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers, a fun twist on a classic dish. We’ve also got eggplants, a variety of hot peppers, and tomatoes in now! And, of course, sweet corn and peaches are still going strong.

Did you know around mid-summer up to 60% 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.)
