|Friday night’s dinner|
It’s that time of year again – Farmer’s Markets are opening up all over the area. I love getting as much of our groceries as I can from local farmers and merchants. The best organic food is what is grown closest to you. The food doesn’t have to travel as far, can be picked at its ripest and therefore needs fewer chemicals.
I have been on a mission for a while now to buy as little processed food as possible and the summer Farmer’s Markets make it easier.
Last night we had fresh bread, fresh mozzerella, pesto and hot house tomatoes all made locally.
Our whole dinner was from the area (except for the wine :)). It was a quick easy dinner and healthier and tastier than ordering a pizza. Plus since it is all local, this meal had much less impact on the environment, and lessening my carbon footprint has been an ongoing project in our house.
I encourage you to check out one of the local markets this week! You can find one nearby almost any day of the week. Happy shopping!
