Welcome Summer with Fresh Fruits and Vegetables!

June is National Fruit and Vegetable Month. What better way to celebrate than by a trip to your local farmers’ market? Farmers’ markets have the freshest, tastiest, and most economical produce around. Fruits and vegetables from farmers’ markets are the freshest you can get, and you will taste the difference. As fruits and vegetables age, they lose nutrients, and they don’t taste as good. For maximum nutritional value and flavor, you want to eat fruits and vegetables that were recently harvested. That’s exactly what you’ll find at a farmers’ market, where many items have been picked less than 24 hours before you buy them. Freezing fresh produce preserves the nutrients. When you find something you love, you may want to stock up and fill your freezer. Then you can enjoy tasty, nutrient-rich produce all year long.

Fruits and vegetables at farmers’ markets generally cost less than they would at the grocery store. Because you buy directly from the farmers, you can avoid all the price markups that grocery stores have. It’s also good for the farmers, because they can sell their food to you at a higher price than they would get if they sold it to a grocery store distributor. It’s a financial win for you both. With the great taste and great prices, you’ll find yourself coming back to the farmers’ market for more fruits and vegetables all summer long.
