You may not have had the time to maintain the healthiest diet as you and your family underwent your cross country moving venture, but after you're all settled in, it's a good idea to stock your new fridge with fresh fruits and vegetables. Here are a few venues that you may want to check out in order to get great produce for affordable prices.
Eating locally sourced food is a rising trend, and most towns have started their own farmer's markets where nearby vendors come to sell their crops. Not only will you have a slew of the freshest fruit and vegetable options, but you'll be able to meet the people responsible for growing your food and know that your money's going to a worthwhile small business. Farmer's markets are also a great way to meet fellow health enthusiasts in your community.
There's no better way to guarantee the freshness and quality of your fruits and vegetables than by picking them yourself! Find local farms and orchards in your area and ask if they allow public picking. Usually, you have to pay by how much you pick, but doing it yourself is affordable and it'll give you and the little ones a chance to get some fresh air and exercise.
Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) projects involve paying a monthly price to receive a fresh shipment of fruits and vegetables from a local farm, usually on a week-by-week basis. CSAs are a great way for you to get involved in a health-oriented community that prizes supporting local businesses.
