Buying local and seasonal foods can help you eat better, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint.
Produce not grown in your area has to be transported there, resulting in more greenhouse gas emissions. To make sure that the food reaches its destination without spoiling, out of season foods are usually harvested early.
Local, seasonal foods travel fewer miles to get to you. They’re also being sold at peak supply and harvest time. This can reduce cost and increase the likelihood that your produce is at peak freshness.
