4 reasons why to buy locally from the Farmers’ Market

Imported foods are picked early to allow for shipping. They ripen without the benefit of plant nutrients. As a result they  usually content only half of the nutrients when compared to locally ripened fruits and produce. Apples for example are ripped in a controlled atmosphere storage space to guarantee their availability all year long.
Buying local:
*Contributes for our local economy.
* Ensures higher nutrient content including  vitamin C and folate because the fruits/vegetables  are harvested when ripe.
* Eating seasonally can expand the variety of foods in your diet.
