New at Heinen’s: Great Lakes Growers

Even when the chilly and rainy weather is upon us, fresh, locally-grown produce is always a major priority for Heinen’s. Thanks to our local greenhouse partners like Great Lakes Growers, we can ensure that our customers have access to high-quality, hand-picked produce, grown just miles from our stores, all year long.  With a state-of-the-art indoor growing facility spanning over 80,000 square feet, Great Lakes Growers has an array of freshly-grown greens that we know will become kitchen staples in your home. 

You may be familiar with Great Lakes Growers’ Living Lettuce and Watercress Fusion, which have been in our Produce Department for years. This spring, we are excited to introduce nine newly-developed packaged lettuce blends from Great Lakes Growers.  Grown in Burton, Ohio, these new lettuces are guaranteed pesticide and herbicide-free and always full of fresh, crunchy flavor. We’re excited to add these products to our assortment of Great Lakes Growers’ greens. Find them in your local Heinen’s Produce Department today!

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
