Did you know that in Ontario, we have access to local produce even during our coldest months of the year? Greenhouse cucumbers are available all year long, while peppers and tomatoes are available from February to December. We love supporting local produce, so we’ve partnered with Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG) to feature them!

Learn how to identify Ontario greenhouse-grown foods and check out this simple PDF from OGVG that shows the PLU codes for local greenhouse produce! Typically, seedless cucumbers packaged in cellophane (the full sized English varieties or the mini seedless) are greenhouse-grown.
