this is what the “locally grown” signs looked like in my store
Did you know that Walmart carries some locally grown produce in their stores?
Walmart recently asked me to go to my store and see if I could find any locally grown produce. So I went to my nearest store on the lookout for the “Locally Grown” signs. Have you seen them in your store? These signs really helped me find whether or not a particular fruit or vegetable was locally grown or not.

What does locally grown mean? Locally grown means produce that was grown in your state. So for example, when I was looking for the “locally grown” signs in my local Walmart, I saw produce like peaches (I do live in the peach state afterall) & Vidalia onions. What I didn’t know was that watermelon was also a locally grown produce. Locally grown will vary based upon where you live. So what is locally grown for me won’t necessarily be the same for you.

Look for the “locally grown” signs in produce on your next trip to Walmart and don’t forget to “like” your local Walmart store on Facebook to find out what is going on in your area.
