It's the New Year... and we all are thinking about eating better this year. You may not be looking for a new diet... but eating fresh vegetables and fruits everyday should always be on the radar.
Farm Fresh Fruits and Vegetables are just plain fun anyway... and just think of the items you might pick up at a Farmers Market:
imported exotic fruits
fresh baked breads
unique canned jellies
handcrafted arts and crafts
