These peaches are picked locally in the morning and delivered same day. Eat local. It tastes better.
I have been exploring several locally grown vegetable farms and trying them, off and on to see which one suits my schedule. The CSA sounds like a great idea.. but they are usually on a very limited pick up schedule, so just purchasing various weekly available things from the farmer’s market seems to be a better option, for now. There are several options for local food, to purchase in my neighborhood.
- CSA – several to choose, each with varying delivery/pickup days and locations
- farmer market- there are three, the big one downtown, the one on Saturday mornings, and the one that is open T-S 9-3 and it’s only 2 miles from my house!
- farmer roadside: just a pickup or two on the side of the road selling veggies – most days, if you know where to look.
- Co-op: with a Wednesday afternoon 4-6 delivery site that is kind of close – but you have to order online on Sunday and then remember to go pick it up on Wednesday… not exactly convenient. Delicious.. but not convenient.
So, we have options… delicious options. Here’s to SUMMER!!
