Buy Local, Eat Fresh.
Did you know most fresh fruits and vegetables produced in the U.S. are shipped from California, Florida or Washington. Before arriving in the supermarket, these foods travel on average 1,300 miles… spending 1-2 weeks in transit. When a once “fresh” apple from California finally arrives in the supermarket, it is now chemically altered with toxins that cause illness & disease, and lacks fresh taste and nutritional value.
Why buy local?
- Tastier. Locally grown fruits and vegetables are usually sold within 24 hours of being harvested, which means they have exceptional flavor.
- Healthier. When a fruit or vegetable is locally grown, the nutritional value is much higher than commercial.
