Buy Local, Buy Healthy.

Why not join a CSA or go to a local farmer’s market to enjoy local produce. Seasonal produce is inexpensive and easier to find.  This time of year cherries, apricots, arugula, spinach and other tasty early spring vegetables are abundant. Better yet, put in your own garden so preparing meals can be as easy as stepping outside to harvest a memorable family meal.

Join a local CSA!
