Why buy local and fresh?

  

It’s simple really….buy fresh, buy local and feel good! There is nothing better than buying fresh ingredients from your local farm stand or farmer’s market. Simple things like tossing together a kale salad and adding carrots, cherry tomatoes and some scallions can go along ways. Local fresh foods have so many benefits. They are packed full of flavor and nutrients. When grown locally, the crops are picked at their peak of ripeness versus being harvested early. Local food has a shorter time between harvest and your table, and it is less likely that the nutrient value has decreased. Food imported from far-away states and countries is often older, has traveled and sits in distribution centers before it gets to your store.
