Seasonal EatingPosted: July 15, 2011
Trying to eat local, seasonal food is a challenge. We don’t tend to read every single source label on produce at the grocery. One way to take a giant step is your local farmer’s market. Everything is guaranteed to be local, and lots is organic, and it is all always picked much closer to the time of your purchase than produce from any store. Herbs that I buy at the farmer’s market last for 2-3 weeks in the fridge, not 4 days like from the grocery store. Taste is hightened too.
