Flavor Packed Food Close to Home

Eating in season is one of the most basic, most powerful things we can do for the environment. It's important to be aware of the miles our food has to travel to get to us. When we buy in season, our food can be found locally.

Imagine a fresh-picked tomato direct from a local farm or your home garden, sun-ripened in September. It’s packed with nutrients and flavor. On the other hand, when we purchase a tomato from the large grocery store around the corner, we don’t realize they’ve been picked green, shipped hundreds or thousands of miles and ripened in transit. These tomatoes taste nothing like summer.

The very anticipation of the bounty of the season to come can heighten our experience of the food we enjoy.
