greenVALENTINE {FARMERS MARKETS & CSA’s}

Have you ever considered shopping LOCAL for produce and so much more at your neighborhood FARMERS MARKETS and/or join a CSA program? its great!
The food is fresh, local, often organic, uses less resources to produce and to transport, it’s often organic….I could go on and on! We were part of a CSA membership program in Fresno for a while and we loved it.  Every week it was like a treasure hunt discovering what local & seasonal items we would be getting.  Each box would evoke smells and flavors of that season and taste incredibly fresh…yum! There are dozens of reasons to shop local farmers markets & CSA’s but don’t just take my word for it.

By the way, in case you were wondering…CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  Basically you pay a regular fee and pick up a box of their freshest produce weekly or monthly…it is fun & easy way to stay healthy while supporting local farmers!  I found this definition from thefreedictionary.com: A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farming operation where the growers and consumers share the risks and benefits of food production. They usually consist of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit, in a vegetable box scheme, and sometimes includes dairy products and meat.

One more thing…I’ve been so busy that blogging has been impossible…but as soon as i can make it more of a priority i will.
Peace out for now.
