Williamsville, N.Y. –Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, and Vermont, is pleased to partner with Shuman Farms to support Breast Cancer Awareness.

During the month of October, Shuman Farms' entire line of RealSweet® sweet onions has gone pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month and Tops is proud to carry the brand in support of the cause. By purchasing RealSweet onions at Tops you are helping to support local Breast Cancer research and treatment. Their boxes, bins, bags, and even the stickers on each of their onions bears the familiar color of the campaign to show their support for a cause that has touched many of our lives.

As a family company, Shuman Farms believes it's important to grow safe, healthy, and great-tasting products. But to them, that's not enough. They also feel it's key to give back to the families and communities that support our products which is why Tops didn’t hesitate to join the cause when the opportunity arose.

“Tops is proud to support a brand that aligns with our shared vision and mission of giving back to the communities we serve,” said Jeff Cady, director of produce and floral for Tops Friendly Markets.

Throughout the month of October, Shuman Farms will also drive education on how eating a nutritious diet filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, including sweet onions, can fight diseases like cancer. ###
