Providing your family with the very best produce is a 24/7 job. At TOPS, we're proud to be produce people. From the moment a seed is planted, we're on a journey with our produce. We carefully select innovative growers as our partners, but it doesn't end there. Our own produce experts ensure your produce is picked at the perfect moment, transported with constant monitoring and the utmost care, and then is rigorously inspected to meet our high standards.
View this behind-the-scenes video showing how your fresh produce goes from farm to your neighborhood TOPS store.
During local produce season, TOPS is proud to work with over 200 local growers. Some of these partners are family farms that have been growing for generations, and many have been part of the TOPS family for decades.

Getting fresh vegetables to your TOPS Friendly Markets at the peak of perfection is only half of the battle. The trick is to keep your fruits and veggies fresh in your home once you buy them.
Here are some tips and tricks for storing and caring for your produce:
Keep asparagus in a glass of water like you would a flower.
Onions make potatoes sprout, so keep them separate.
Potatoes and fresh garlic thrive when stored in a dark place.
Most fruit does best in dry conditions.
Most vegetables keep best in humid conditions.
At TOPS, we know it's important to have options you feel good about. That's why we take pride in offering products that contain nothing artificial, and are as good for your family as they are for the environment.
