WHAT'S IN SEASON / COMING THIS WEEK

Heading into July, we'll see fewer tender greens and alliums but more warmer weather fruits and vegetables. Our farmers will be bringing larger quantities of summer crops such as cucumbers, heartier greens like chard, broccoli, beets, cabbage, snap beans, squash, onions, and maybe the beginning of the sweet corn. Blueberries are getting sweeter, and raspberries and blackberries should be joining them.

REASONS TO SHOP LOCAL

  • Local food tastes better. Food imported from far away is older, has traveled on trucks or planes, and has sat in warehouses before it finally gets to you.
  • Local food is better for you. The shorter the time from farm to table, the less likely it is that nutrients will be lost.
  • Local food is safe. Local farmers aren't anonymous and they take their responsibility to the consumers seriously.
