Modern food processing and worldwide distribution of food make most foods available year-round, but eating seasonally allows you to enjoy the ripest and freshest foods at their peak. Buying fresh, locally grown foods is good for your local economy, good for family farmers, and good for your family's health. Farm-fresh foods are actually higher in nutrients - and taste better! Also, visiting farmers markets provides an exciting opportunity to try new foods seldom seen in grocery stores! Rare treasures such as lipstick peppers, watermelon radishes and Brandywine tomatoes await. Sign up for our farmers market-inspired workshop, and learn how to cook fresh fabulous foods with the seasons.
