Top Five Reasons to Buy Locally Grown Produce

1.Freshness & Taste – Local produce is generally as fresh as you can get without growing it yourself. The taste of fresh fruits and veggies improves with more freshly picked, local produce.

2.Healthy Choices – Besides the freshness, most if not all locally grown produce is untreated and free from additives and preservatives.

3.Heritage – Buying fresh local produce encourages continued growth of heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables, especially tomatoes.

4.Community – When you purchase local produce, you are helping to sustain the local economy and upholding the way of life of area farmers.

5.Green Lifestyle – Purchasing fresh produce from farms and farmer’s markets drastically reduces the amount of resources like fuel and packaging necessary to get the fruits and vegetables to your dinner table.
