For all of my local NC readers….did you know you can actually buy local produce from North Carolina and save money while buying since you receive 30% or more savings compared to grocery stores when shopping at BJ’s.
Think you can’t taste the difference between tomatoes picked yesterday and tomatoes picked last week? Local produce is fresher and tastes better than produce that was on a truck traveling thousands of miles and the fewer steps there are between where your produce is coming from and your kitchen table, the less chance there is of contamination.
BJ’s Wholesale Club’s has taken this into consideration and created their locally-grown produce program, Farm to Club, which is rolling out for a second year. BJ’s is making it possible for customers to have fresh fruits and vegetables that are practically grown in their own backyard. Cottle Strawberry Nursery in Faison Bottomley Evergreens and Farms in Ennice and Bunce Brothers Farms in Stedman are providing all North Carolina BJ’s locations with fresh corn, cucumbers, green peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, eggplant tomatoes and green beans. The local fresh-from-the-farm program seeks to involve local farmers to help build up the local agricultural industry — thus helping our own local economy.Pin It
