Pick Your Own or Farmers Market for Fresh Produce


Supporting local agriculture is a part of living a sustainable life style.  It’s time to start picking local fruits.  Strawberries always start the season for me! Fresh food especially one you picked yourself has a higher nutritional value than anything you can buy in the produce section of your favorite supermarket.

Here are some local sites that you can consult to find local produce near you. Some site are easier to use than others and each varies with the information provided.

If pick your own is not for you, patronize your local farmer’s market.  So many have sprung up throughout town making it easier for you to buy fresh produce and support your local farmers.
