business news in context, analysis with attitude

The St. Louis Business Journal reports that Schnuck Markets is partnering with BrightFarms to build a one-acre, $2 million greenhouse that will provide the retailer "with fresh, local produce year round ... the greenhouse will be located within close proximity to a network of Schnucks stores. A local farmer, in partnership with BrightFarms, will operate the greenhouse and deliver produce to Schnucks."

Supervalu-owned Cub Foods signed a similar deal with BrightFarms earlier this year.
