Locally grown produce has many benefits – economic, health, and environmental. The main health benefit is that it’s fresher. Fruits and vegetables begin to lose their nutrients and even flavor within 24 hours of being picked, so fresher produce is more nutritious. Locally grown food is also picked at its peak ripeness, when it’s most dense with nutrients and flavor components. We select our growers based upon the foods that they specialize in so that consumers will always have the freshest, most nutritious, and most flavorful food available!
