Giant Food, a greater Wash., D.C. regional grocery chain, is bringing back its local produce boxes featuring locally sourced, in-season produce sold exclusively through Giant Delivers. Available throughout the summer without a subscription or commitment, the boxes retail for $22.99 and contain eight varieties of produce from local farms throughout Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.
For the third year in a row, Giant is sourcing all items from local farms to bring the freshest variety to its customers. Items will vary weekly depending on farm harvests and what is in season. Participating farms include Baugher's Orchards and Houser Produce Farm of Maryland, Papen Farms and Fifer Orchards of Delaware, Kirby Farms of Virginia and more.
"The Local Produce Boxes continue to be highly successful and are an exciting offering for our customers looking for fresh produce sourced from farms throughout their local community," said Adenike Olaleye, senior manager of e-commerce merchandising at Giant Food. "We're thrilled to be able to offer these specially curated produce boxes for the third year in a row to provide our customers with an expanded variety of the best seasonal produce options week after week."
