LANDOVER, MD. - Giant Food has launched Local Produce Boxes, featuring locally sourced, in-season produce online through Giant Delivers. Available throughout the summer without a subscription or commitment, the boxes retail for $20 and will contain six or more unique items from local farms in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.
Items will vary weekly depending on farm harvests and what is in season. Customers can view local produce seasonality in a calendar on GiantFood.com. Over 20 farms are participating and include Fifer Orchards and Vincent Farms of Delaware, Miller Farms, Houser Produce Farm, Calloway Bros and Shlagel Farms of Maryland and Kirby Farms of Virginia.
"At Giant, we know our customers appreciate fresh and seasonal produce when they are in-store or ordering online just as much as we do," said Gregg Dorazio, director of e-commerce at Giant Food. "We look forward to bringing these specially curated Local Produce Boxes featuring summer's tastiest produce to our customers."
The launch of Giant's Local Produce Boxes is one of the many ways Giant is furthering its commitment to increase food traceability and transparency and make healthy, locally sourced foods accessible for customers. These boxes are part of Giant's 2021 goal to work with 20 new farms in Maryland and 70 new farms in Virginia.
