From your local growers.... at Big Y

Throughout the Connecticut River Valley, you'll find small farms devoted to their specialty like hand-picked fruits and vegetables. These family-owned and independent farms are a big part of the fabric of our region, helping ensure that our unique culture and cuisine will stay vital for generations to come. We’re committed to helping support these local farmers by bringing their delicious products directly to you, strengthening our New England community and building up our local economy. It's this simple: Buying from local growers means that the profits stay local. It helps keep our vibrant farming community thriving. It's also a benefit to the landscape, ensuring that green fields, farmlands and verdant orchards will be preserved for future generations.

What's more, local products are "green" in the truest sense of the word. They don't travel as far to get to you, so less fossil fuel is used, resulting in fewer carbon emissions. The bottom line: It's better for our air, soil and water.

We're proud to work with local farmers whenever we can. It helps keep these small businesses healthy, and it helps us bring the highest-quality merchandise to our customers. We're committed to providing the freshest, most flavorful foods that we can. In the spirit of community, we're proud to partner with other New Englanders who feel the same way.
