EAT LOCALLY GROWN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

 Eating  Fruits and Vegetables Of The Season 

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables SignI’m big on cooking and eating fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables. I so enjoyed the summer fruits and vegetables that taste as sweet and juicy as they looked and smelled! Now that we’re bidding the summer Fruits and Vegetables Farmers Market Signgoodbye; it’s so sad to see it go.  But, as you know all good things come to an end. Fall is on the way and it brings  out a wonderful bounty of winter fruits and vegetables,  kids are back in school and the Prime Time TV new programming schedule starts.  There nothing like sitting in front of the TV with a big bowl something warm and comforting made with fresh ingredients.

September yields the end of some summer staples like berries and tomatoes while other are just starting to become ripe for the picking but don’t forget there are still plenty of goodies that are in their prime season!

I prefer farmers markets over the supermarket you’ll save money, your produce will be fresh as well as being grown locally.   They also allow you to eat seasonally without ever knowing that’s what your doing.  I didn’t know there was a name for people that eat what’s in season! If you’re like me joined the club of Eating Seasonally!!

 FRUITS AND VEGETABLES ARE ALWAYS IN SEASON

You see at the farmers market the produce is being brought in from the farm as it’s picked which keeps the cost down. Since the edibles didn’t take a costly trip to get to you, less fuel is used so it also reduces the carbon footprint and keeps your money in your city, state and community! It also brings me joy knowing that I’m helping the environment, my local economy as well as putting money in the pockets of our farmers.

EATING SEASONALLY IS SEXY!

NO BOATS, PLAINS OR TRAINS FOR MY FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Buy Fruit and Vegetables Local SignSure, eating seasonally doesn’t allow you to eat what you want when you would like so, you’ll have to wait for your favorites to come back around season to season. But, it does give you a reason to add some new dishes to your repertoire.  If you just can’t phantom being without a certain fruit or veggie over the winter, I would suggest canning or checking with the farmers at the market; many offer preserved selections as well.

I love fresh, local fruit and vegetables. Nothing like it. The winter fare is not as exciting for me, as the variety isn’t here as much as in the summertime. I do hate to see summer go … Thanks for sharing your post with us!
