Eat Local This Summer

One of my favorite things to do in the summer season is go to farmers markets. They are almost always stocked with great local produce, and you can get a much better deal from them than what you will find at the grocery store. It usually tastes much better too! If you're an environmental nut like me, you will also appreciate that very little energy was needed to grow the crops adn then transport them to be sold.

Local farmers are quite dependent on locals buying their items, so be a sport and support your local community! If you're not sure when or where the nearest farmers market is to you, look at your local community website or state website to find those listings.
