Enjoy the Great Outdoors
Did you know that the produce in an average grocery store in the United States has traveled 1500 miles to get there? With the warm Spring weekends upon us, there is no better time to check out an outdoor farmer’s market. Buying produce from outdoor markets is a great way to support your local economy, not to mention cut out the middlemen inflating prices, and lower the amount of fuel wasted on shipping your fruits and veggies. With a season full of cool watermelon, juicy peaches, sweet corn on the cob and gorgeous tomatoes ahead of us, use the Department of Agriculture’s helpful directory to find a farmer’s market near you today!
