McCaffrey's reaping harvest from local greenhouse

McCaffrey's Market, with stores in Pennsylvania (Yardley, Newtown) and New Jersey (Princeton, West Windsor), is now selling produce "that's just about as local as you can get," according to company officials.

Produce is bring grown hydronically by New York-based BrightFarms in a newly constructed, 50,000 square foot greenhouse down the road from one of McCaffrey's stores.

"We're going to be getting baby romaine, baby kale, spring mix and baby arugula," according to the company's produce buyer. The packages, filled at the greenhouse, will bear a sticker indicating the product was grown locally for McCaffrey's.

Later harvests will yield additional varieties of produce.
