Whole Foods sources produce from store roof greenhouse

"Gotham Greens has been a valued local supplier of high quality, flavorful and fresh produce to Whole Foods Market since 2011, making this greenhouse partnership a natural and extremely exciting next step in our relationship.” —J'AIME MITCHELL, Whole Foods Market

Most retailers receive produce by truck, but Whole Foods Market can now receive it by elevator.

The greenhouse that sits on the top of Whole Foods’ Brooklyn, N.Y., store recently started harvesting from its crop of lettuces, leafy greens, herbs and seven types of tomatoes.

This is the second rooftop hydroponic farm run by Brooklyn-based Gotha
