Produce often travels across the country for days or longer before it hits grocery store shelves. Lengthy journeys like that don’t make sense to BrightFarms. That’s why they are bringing the farm closer to the grocery store. The group announced plans to build a 100,000-square-foot greenhouse farm in Indianapolis by 2014 to stock 97 stores. BrightFarms is also breaking ground on greenhouse farms in St. Paul, St. Louis and Kansas City.
