A&P announced Tuesday that 30 local farms would provide seasonal produce to its A&P, Food Basics, Pathmark, Superfresh, The Food Emporium and Waldbaum’s banners.
Farms in Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania will supply fruit such as blueberries, apples and peaches as well as 35 types of vegetables.
“Farmers work extremely hard year round to provide their products to the community,” Eric Kanterman, chief merchandising officer of Montvale, N.J.-based A&P, said in a press release. “We are thrilled to offer our customers seasonal produce fresh from the farm in their neighborhood.”
In addition, 11 A&P, Pathmark and Superfresh locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will host “Farmer’s Market” events in July and August, according to a company spokesperson. A farmer from Dandrea Produce, Vineland, N.J., will talk to customers about local produce and the best time to buy.
