Summer may be winding down in the majority of the United States, however you still have plenty of time to reap the benefits of delicious and healthy locally grown produce. Purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables in season doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Visiting your local Farmers Market is a wonderful way to get vitamin and nutrient filled produce at the peak of freshness. Often it’s picked the same day you buy it.
You may also find that some of the markets which are on actual working farms sometimes carry other local items such as honey, apple cider vinegar, and fresh eggs.
