Although Big Y is currently seeking Hispanic and Latin American products, it’s always interested in adding new partners of all types from its store regions.

Ahead of the grand reopening of its newly renovated West Springfield, Mass., store next month, Big Y is looking for more locally produced Hispanic and Latin American items to carry at the location through the grocer’s Local Hispanic Vendor Discovery Tour.

The West Springfield store’s Hispanic grocery section will feature traditional ingredients and pantry staples from across Latin America, including Brazil and the Caribbean, with a selection of tropical produce such as plantains, ajicito peppers, an expanded selection of roots, sugar cane, chayote, and an assortment of chilies.
