US (MI): "Farmers market growers love AAS winners"

At the recent Great Lakes Expo, which is a fruit, vegetable and farm market show held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, it became clear that many farmer’s market growers are familiar with and great supporters of All-America Selections and AAS Winners. The AAS and NGB booth saw a lot of traffic to find out which new varieties are now available. Many breeders who have AAS Winners featured them in their booths, such as PanAmerican Seed, PureLine Seed, and Johnny’s Selected Seeds.



The best conversation at the show was with a farmer’s market grower from Canada. He was very well-versed in AAS Winners and had many success stories about his customers’ interest in AAS Winners and asking for them by variety name. When this grower was asked how he decided which new varieties to trial, he answered by saying his trust in the history and performance of AAS Winners always made them a safe choice. When asked how many varieties he usually starts with when growing something new to the market, he replied: “If it’s just any new variety, I’ll start with 50 plants. But, if it’s an AAS Winner, I’ll start with 500 plants.”
