July 2014 - Tips, eNews and More
With summer in full swing, more and more people are takng
advantage of all the farmers' markets popping up around
their communities. Shopping at farmers' markets gives you
a great opportunity to really connect with the food you
buy and to learn about where it comes from and who
produces it. It's also a great way to teach kids about
food, the importance of eating whole foods and cooking
from scratch when you can.
Other advantages of buying at Farmers' Markets include:
When you're not out picking up fresh meat and produce, be
sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, keep hydrated and stay
cool as best you can!
- Supporting local farmers and small business owners
- Enjoying healthier and more sustainable locally grown
- Creating an excellent opportunity to communicate with
those who grow or create the foods that you eat. It helps
to build community in your city or neighborhood.
- Fruits and vegetables are fresher, and therefore,
- It's outside! - what can be more satisfying than
enjoying fresh air and sunshine while you shop for
ingredients to make something delicious!
We hope you are enjoying the summer!
