The Farmer’s Market

                                               “Know your farmer, know your food.”

There’s no better place to buy fresh fruits and veggies than a local farmer’s market, especially during the summer. The flavor of locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables cannot be compared to those found in most supermarkets. In addition to the freshness and quality of the produce, you’re also supporting small farmers who must compete with the industrial scale agricultural. Most farmer’s markets in the northeast run May through October when most produce is in season.  In season produce not only offers the best flavor, but the best value as well!  I’ve listed below some of the most popular seasonal summer fruits and vegetables. Head to your local farmer’s market to enjoy some of the freshest and tastiest produce around!
