Get fresh from the garden flavor without planting a seed. Purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at your local farmer’s market. Buying locally grown fruits and vegetables supports area farmers, reduces fuel consumption and saves you money. Did you know that much of the food we consume travels 1300 miles before reaching our tables? And most, about 90%, of the fossil fuel used in the world’s food system is used for packaging, transportation and marketing. So pack up your reusable bags and headout to your local farmer’s market. You will be amazed at the flavor and value found in locally grown fruits and vegetables.
