Buying local is good for you and great for your neighborhood farmer. Many local farmers do not use pesticides or chemicals so the fruit and veggies are good for your health and good for the environment.When you think about it not using chemicals is better for mother earth, better for the birds, bugs, animals and you.

My favorite purchase at the farmers market is strawberries.There is nothing like sinking your teeth into a fresh organic strawberry, sweet juice running down your chin, a pint can be consumed in minutes.Beautiful deep red berries that are freshly picked in the morning and hours later they are being washed in your sink.

I often wonder why people buy tomatoes at the grocery store that have been shipped in from California when you can get many varieties that have been picked that morning and put into a basket for you to buy that afternoon. I had dinner with friends last night and they made a tomato salad which consisted of heirloom, yellow and red tomatoes that were bought that morning at the farmers market. A little balsamic vinegar and kosher salt is all that was needed as dressing, it was like candy. The tomatoes were so fresh I had 3 helpings, it could have been my whole meal.

If you have a finicky eater in your family fresh veggies and fruit taste so good they will not only eat them up but ask for more. Tomatoes , berries, corn, apples and herbs are not the only item at the local markets,but fresh breads, cheese, eggs and meat are also a highlight. Local bakeries have muffins , cookies and cakes available so you could easily buy everything for a wonderful meal for your family or next party.

Think local and buy local, it is good for you and your community. Click here to find a Farmer's Market near you.
