Boy, I don’t know about you but this summer we have been taking advantage of the fresh veggies and fruits that are distributed to our area. There is nothing like making a delicious fruit salad or grilling corn on the cob from one of the local farmers.
Many of our grocery stores get deliveries right from our local growers so you know you are getting great produce and it isn’t shipped in from other states. This of course helps the local farmers with their business but allows us as the customer to have the “Pick of the Crop”.
We also have several Farmer’s Markets that are open twice per week in our surrounding towns. Our farmers and local vendors bring in their produce to large market stands in the cities as well as other home made products. This gives you an opportunity to actually meet them and get more information on how they grow their crops and make their products.
We know this season doesn’t last all year long, so take advantage of your local farmer’s markets, your country road farmer’s stand, and your local grocers. Eat Healthy, and Buy Local.
