On their opening day, I went to Harris Teeter to check out the new store.
As I was looking in the produce section, I noticed that a few items had an oval sign in front of them reading “Locally Grown.” This surprised me because I know that Harris Teeter has never carried anything local before.
Looking closer at the items, the tags said “Grown in USA.” One said “New Jersey.” One of the managers was standing right there so I asked him: “What does this mean?”
His response was: “Anything within a six-hour radius is considered local.”
Wow, at least we know it’s not from China!
Let’s support our local farmers!
