Visit your local farmers' market and meet your neighbors who have small farms. You'll meet the folks who make cheese, bring eggs to market or grow the most delicious carrots. Spend a morning at the market and purchase delicious goodies to work with as you create healthy and fresh meals.
During strawberry season, purchase local strawberries and make jam or strawberry rhubarb pie. In the fall, purchase garlic and potatoes and roast them with rosemary and olive oil. Also, make delicious salads with fresh lettuce and homegrown tomatoes.
