When you buy produce, you typically don't know much about how it's grown or how many miles it traveled before it reaches you. This means it won't be as fresh, tasty, or nutrient-dense as it could be. Buying farm-fresh produce, on the other hand, means you know where your food comes from and can get specific information about how it was grown. It will be delicious, colorful, and full of important nutrients, and as an added bonus, you'll be helping to support your local farmers and economy.
