You can’t help but smile when visiting the expanded produce area featuring a new fresh prep cut fruit and vegetable station. Tops partnership with over 200 local farmers and growers including Maple Lawn dairy farm in Lyons, and Williams Farms, a 3rd generation family owned fruit and vegetable farm in Marion, brings you the freshest local product straight from the farm to your table.
