A supermarket in Montreal is raising the roof on local produce. Located in the Saint-Laurent borough, IGA Extra Famille Duchemin says it’s the first grocery store in Canada to sell herbs and vegetables grown on its own roof. The 25,000-foot space features more than 30 different varieties of certified-organic produce, including tomatoes, lettuce, radishes, kale, eggplant, and basil.
