BrightFarms recently announced a deal with the A&P grocery chain to provide it year-round with New York City-grown vegetables from the company's (and the country's) largest hydroponic rooftop greenhouse. This is one of many urban greenhouse developments sprouting up across the US, Canada and beyond.



Roof-top greenhouses use building heat for efficiency, and also incorporate other energy-efficient features. For more on the expansion of these greenhouses, visit here.
