BrusselSprouts

When you eat fresh produce purchased from local grocery stores and/or Certified Farmer’s Markets, you’re doing something wonderful for your health, your family’s health, and the environment.

Eating Local, Fresh Produce is Good For You

Eating fresh, in season, and local fresh fruits and vegetables ensures you’re getting the most nutrients from your food. Fresh food doesn’t have to be processed, freeze-dried, or packed with chemicals to keep it from spoiling.

How does it help the environment?

Buying local results in less need to transport food from elsewhere, which curbs greenhouse gas emissions and the overall ecological footprint.
