What’s New In The Farmer’s Market

By |2022-06-27T19:57:17-04:00June 27th, 2022|Herbs, Recipes, The Farmers Market|

Fresh Local Produce available at the Farmer's Market. The main health benefit of locally grown food is that it’s fresher. Fruits and vegetables begin to lose their nutrients within 24 hours of being picked, so fresher produce is more nutritious. In addition, locally grown food is picked at its peak ripeness, when it’s most dense with nutrients.

Victory Gardens, also called “war gardens” or “food gardens for defense” were gardens planted by ordinary citizens during World War I and World War II to provide some relief in the public food demands. As it is now as it was in World War II when the nation fell on hard times, this is the time we can help the nation and ourselves to persevere. With store shelves bare and nutritious foods in short supply, if there is any good to be found in these trying times, let one of them be the fact that we are now in the growing season.
