May 31, 2012 10:14PM
Wegmans is making it easier to enjoy organic foods by making more options available in Mechanicsburg. The company has recently added more organic choices—foods that taste as nature intended, without synthetic chemicals or fertilizers, antibiotics, growth hormones or genetically engineered ingredients—throughout the store. They now carry more than 280 Wegmans Organic items and more than 1,800 organic products storewide, including Wegmans line of organic condiments, with relish and pickles being introduced this month.
Through longstanding partnerships with local growers and the work being done at Wegmans Organic Farm, in upstate New York, the Mechanicsburg store is also preparing for another season of providing fresh, local produce and organic products to our region. In addition to growing fresh vegetables and herbs, the Wegmans Organic Farm has been working on testing organic seeds and developing their own line of gardening items and continues to share lessons from the farm with local growers to help them adopt more organic growing practices, while extending their growing seasons.
Location: 6416 Carlisle Pike, Mechanicsburg. For more information, call 717-791-4500 or visit Wegmans.com.
