Time To Visit Your Farmers' Market!
You get only produce that is in season and won't find food imported from other states or countries. That's a good thing. You can buy a lot of in-season fruit, go home and can jelly or jam, or just can the fresh fruit to use in the middle of the winter.
I find the prices to be very comparable to grocery store prices, and the quality is much, much better. You might find a worm or two in the fresh corn, but you won't normally find pesticides. I consider the worm to be a trade-off that's well worth it.
Become a locavore - buy your vegetables locally from farmers that are invested in your community. You will taste the difference!
