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!
