The Must Have Produce for Summer

We all loathe the list of fruits & and vegetables that are deemed unworthy of our precious produce budget. Instead of skipping on the much needed Vitamin A, C & Fiber – enjoy these seasonal Summer favorites instead!

Everyone knows that all fruits and vegetables have a season, right? If you didn’t, they do! The objective for every produce purchase is to buy those fruits and vegetables that are naturally in season. In fact, nutritionists agree that those fruits and vegetables picked at the peak of freshness and in season hold more nutritional benefits than their out of season counterparts. When you buy a fruit or vegetable that isn’t in season, who really knows where it came from or how it was raised… It probably was not organically grown. We’re using probably very liberally.
