When Produce is in Season

It is important to purchase produce that is in season for a couple of reasons:

  1. Cheaper because the produce does not have to be shipped from another state/country; companies can get the produce locally.
  2. Shipping produce from another state causes the nutrients to decrease due to the travel time involved.

* The more local the produce are, the healthier it is, and the cheaper it is
