Boston Organics' customers are helping to support and sustain a network of local farms, local suppliers, and local businesses. Since we are not limited to sourcing from just one farm, Boston Organics is able to offer our customers a broad selection of produce, year round! Check out what's local and regional this week...
what is local?
Unlike the term "organic," which is strictly regulated by the USDA, there is no legal definition and no labeling guides for what exactly can be called "local" food.
Here at Boston Organics, we take a more regional approach by sourcing much of our local produce from the northeast region (Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine). Here's what's local & regional this week:
