We are in the midst of summer, and that means lots of fresh, local produce, and there is nothing that tastes better than fresh local produce in the summertime. A juicy ruby colored strawberry, a salad with just picked fresh greens or a sliced heirloom summer tomato all seem to taste exactly how nature intended them to taste. We are proud to offer a variety of local produce items that are grown within 400 miles of our marketplaces. Benefits to buying local include less transportation resources being used, support of the local farmers and economy, and a fresher more authentic taste. Summertime is the best time of year to find a variety of local foods in your Marketplace!
