I love to find all the fresh treasures from local farmers and a few brought in from further away. In the mid to late summer there were tomatoes stacked on carts all over the place. I love vine ripe tomatoes. I hate going to the store in the winter months and seeing those hot house tomatoes that just taste like wet cardboard. I guess I was spoiled growing up. We had gardens every year and I can definitely taste the difference in tomatoes that were left to ripen in a warehouse stacked mile high in boxes.
I usually end up with apples, onions, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, avocados, squash, watermelon, bananas and grapes. Last weekend I got 6 large bags and I paid about $23.00 for it all. I checked the prices at the grocery store later and figured it would have been about $39 if I’d gotten this all there. Besides being less money, it’s fresh and has a lot less of the pesticides and such on them. I just love spring and summer for all the fresh fruits and veggies. Do y’all have a garden? If not, do you utilize your local farmers markets?
