Hit the market

Shopping at a farmer's market can help you wallet and your health in a number of ways. First, the freshness of the produce ensures that it's nutrients are more potent than the produce picked up at the grocery stores. Plus, because it was just picked, it's shelf-life is longer, giving you more time to enjoy it without risking spoilage. Finally, because the produce is local you can avoid the added costs of shipping, storage and packaging, generally resulting in a lower price tag.
