BJ’s Wholesale Club Expands Local Produce Program

WESTBOROUGH, Mass.BJ’s Wholesale Club here has announced that its “Farm to Club” local produce program will be expanded to all of its 195 stores in the 15 states where the company operates.

“As a buyer at BJ’s, I strive to provide the very best produce for members,” Rob Johnson, produce buyer for BJ’s Wholesale Club, said in a press announcement. “The Farm to Club program is very good for both the members who buy the local fruits and veggies and the farmers who are growing our food.”

The program will include a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables including zucchini, tomatoes, corn, green peppers, yellow squash and cucumbers, all clearly marked with a special “Farm to Club, Locally Grown” seal. In all cases, any produce marked with the seal will be grown within the state where the store is located.

The program is already active in Florida, and will roll out from now through summer 2012, as different fruits and vegetables come into season in different states. Members can look for updates on the program and find more information about participating farms on the company’s Facebook page at
