One of my favorite ways to spend Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings in the summer months is visiting the outdoor farmer's market near my home. Fresh, locally grown produce is seriously HEAVEN ON EARTH! There is nothing tastier than a perfect, ripe tomato, a flavorful plump peach, or a huge, juicy watermelon grown practically right in your backyard! Don't you agree? For me, some of the things I love most about summer are the delicious fresh fruit & veggies (and homemade ice cream- but that's another post).
The only problem with buying lots and lots of fruits and vegetables is that it gets expensive! Why does it cost so much more money to eat healthy than not?! I've always heard that it's cheaper to buy produce that is "in season"-- but besides the obvious answers, how do you know what's actually in season? Recently I found this little ditty from And Then We Saved that tells you! It's a great resource to use if you want to branch out and experiement with produce you typically don't use. Let's go save money and eat healthy this summer!
