August: a perfect month for fresh produce

August: a perfect month for fresh produce

Eating local and seasonal fruits and vegetables is one of the best choices you can make for your overall health and that of our beautiful planet. Locally grown products are not only much fresher, tastier and richer in natural nutrients, but they are also a more environmentally friendly choice since they require less transportation than their imported counterparts.

 

Here's a (non-exhaustive) list of local seasonal fruits and vegetables to guide you on your next visit to the local market or grocery store.
