We're proud to work with local producers whenever we can.
We're committed to providing our shoppers with the finest, freshest and most flavorful foods available, and in the spirit of community togetherness, we're proud to partner with other New Englanders who feel the same way, partnering with over 500 local businesses with over 4,000 individual local products. These items can be found across every department in our store.
Local products help to keep our local community thriving.
Buying from local growers, businesses and manufacturers means that the profits stay local. Helping to keep these small producers in business is good for the local economy, and helps to 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.
Because they don't travel as far to get to you, less fossil fuel is used, resulting in fewer carbon emissions. Smaller local farms are also far more likely to produce food using sustainable growing methods and to avoid chemical pesticides, genetically altered food and hormones. The bottom line: It's better for our air, soil and water.
