What's In Season - December

Happy Holidays!! Wherever you are located - try to find something fresh and locally grown to add to your holiday food menu and don't forget to support your local businesses when buying gifts this year!!
Some Good Info:
Food grown in your own community was probably picked within the past day or two. It's crisp, sweet and loaded with flavor. Several studies have shown that the average distance food travels from farm to plate is 1,500 miles. In a week-long (or more) delay from harvest to dinner table, sugars turn to starches, plant cells shrink, and produce loses its vitality.
