Freshness, Taste and Nutrition

The produce you buy at a farm or farmers’ market (or grow in your own garden) has likely been picked in the last day or two. It is has fully ripened on the plant and is bursting with flavour and nutrition. Furthermore, fresh food usually contains fewer preservatives (which are applied to food that has to withstand long travel times), which means you are consuming a more natural and wholesome product. This improved quality extends beyond produce and also applies to local meats, eggs, baked goods, preserves, honey and more.
