Purchasing locally grown, seasonal foods is a no-brainer. You're eating healthy, nutrient rich food and supporting local agriculture at the same time.
Fruits and vegetables in season are at the highest potential of flavor and nutritional content than at any other time of the year. When you buy a tomato in the summer, you're buying a tastier tomato with more vitamins and health benefits than if it were wintertime and you'd purchased one. When produce is in season, it's also at the height of its abundance. And what does that equal? Lower prices for you.
