Support You Local Farmers

Real Estate Agent with Zach Taylor Real Estate 213-638


Its that wonderful time of year again.  Farm fresh fruits and vegetables everywhere and at the local farmers markets many have just been picked unlike at the grocery store where they have been shipped, stored and end up with short shelf lives and because of this many fruits and vegetables have been robbed of their flavor and nutrients.

And that good product from your local farmer leads to better, healthier and more flavorful dishes.

So support your local farmers and you and your children benefit, the pick your own fields are a great learning experience for your children they get hands on learning of where their food comes from. 


      BON APPETIT!!!!

These local farmers markets are great and the food is so much fresher than you can get in the grocery store.  In our area the prices are much better than the supermarkets too.

Congratulations on your featured post - and a good one at that! I always encourage local shopping, flea markets, farmer's markets, local shops, they are just so phenomenal. And the food you can get for the prices? Deal!

All over fresh veggies this time of year and you are right the difference is very noticable. Just ate some eggplant picked that day. What a difference. Tomatoe harvest time now also. Fresh is best.
