Farmers meet with customers at Wegmans

Created: 08/08/2014 7:50 PM WHEC.com

Customers were getting to know their local growers and the people behind the fresh fruit and vegetables you can buy in the grocery store. Friday, farmers were at several Wegmans stores across the area.

It's part of the "Meet the Grower" Weekend. We're told locally grown, fresh-picked produce is delivered to Wegmans directly from family farms every day.

"Our peaches and our blueberries that are in the store right now were probably just picked this morning or yesterday afternoon," says Adam Drexler, of Lagoner Farms. "So, it's the freshest possible and we stand behind all the hard work we put into our growing and that's why we're here"
