There’s nothing better than going to the local farmers market to see what local produce is in season. The local market has schooled me in new veggies such as the “Florida Avocado, “white asparagus” and even “rainbow carrots”. Getting more fruits and veggies in your diet is much easier when you expand your opportunities by shopping where the selection is better, the food is local, and you are supporting your localeconomy! Not to mention that you are not buying produce that has been transported across the country or from a different country contributing to consumption of fossil fuel and resources.
Below are a few photos I took at Delaware’s market in Hollywood, Fl- where I like to shop local produce and am chummy with my butcher. This is where I buy smoked marlin to make my South Florida Smoked Fish Dip, the number one recipe hit on my blog. Let me know what adventures you have at your local market and what dishes result from your findings! Send me your photos and recipes/stories and I will post them!
