Williamsville, N.Y., 2017-Jul-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tops Friendly Markets always takes great pride in offering its customers the very best produce New York State has to offer. TOPS supports over 200 local growers during the homegrown season and now, thanks to an exclusive partnership with Fulmer Valley Farms in NY’s southern tier, customers can enjoy local flavor year round. The new microgreen product, “Pick’d”, provides access to delicious, fresh local greens, 365 days a year.
Based out of Andover, NY, Fulmer Valley Farms produces microgreens with clean growing technology, free of GMOs and pesticides. Fulmer Valley Farms uses a hydroponics system in a clean, controlled environment to grow produce the way that it’s supposed to be. Microgreens are harvested at the peak of taste and nutritional value, and delivered within hours to a local TOPS supermarket.
“We value our partnerships with local growers and love to offer our customers the latest in innovative products”, said Scott Tyo, category business manager, fresh vegetables, for Tops Friendly Markets. “Microgreens also provide 44% more nutritional value than mature lettuces and vegetables, which is an additional value that no other local grocer can offer.”
