Big Y now stocked with locally grown hydroponic lettuce


Lettuce grown in a greenhouse in Indian Orchard is now on the vegetable shelves at several Big Y supermarkets in Greater Springfield.

The Lettuce is grown at Wellspring Harvest Greenhouse, at a property in Indian Orchard.

The first shipment arrived this morning at the Big Y on Cooley Street in Springfield. We spoke to one woman who was buying the fresh produce.

“Well, first of all, it’s this and I like the idea the roots are still attached and growing coming for it,” Barbara Schofield told 22News.

Wellspring grows the lettuce using hydroponics. In addition to the Big Y stores, the growing cooperative also provides vegetables to Mercy Medical Center.
