Landover, Md.-based Giant Food, which earlier this year announced plans to put more local products on its shelves, said it's bringing back its Local Produce Boxes, featuring locally sourced, in-season produce sold exclusively through Giant Delivers, for summer 2022. 

Giant Food, an Ahold Delhaize banner, said the boxes will retail for $20 and contain six or more items from local farms in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. Local Produce Boxes will be available throughout the summer on a weekly basis; no commitment or subscription is required.

"Giant's first summer of offering the Local Produce Boxes [in 2021] was a huge success, and our customers loved knowing that their produce was sourced locally by the best farms around our area," Adenike Olaleye, senior manager of e-commerce merchandising at Giant Food, said in a statement. "We're working with more farmers this year to offer an even wider range of produce options that will keep our customers pleased week after week."

Items will vary week to week, Giant Food said, depending on farm harvests and what is in season. Participating farms include Baugher's Orchards and Houser Produce Farm of Maryland, Papen Farms and Fifer Orchards of Delaware, and Kirby Farms of Virginia.

Giant Food said shoppers can save $5 by purchasing a Giant Delivers Local Meal Bundle, which is a specially curated recipe that allows shoppers to purchase all ingredients in one click and automatically save $5. In addition, from July 8 through September 8, Giant Food customers can earn 400 flexible rewards points every time they spend at least $20 on participating local products. Shoppers can use those points towards grocery savings at Giant or on gas at participating Giant and Shell fuel stations.

Giant Food was founded in 1936 and operates 164 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Washington, D.C., with approximately 20,000 associates.
