Tomatoes, cucumbers and peaches, oh my!

Summer is in full swing as the bounty from area farms attests. Farm-fresh produce tastes better and is better for you than vegetables and fruits that have been shipped from far away. While you’re shopping at the market, also remember to pick up your local, natural meat and eggs, and locally produced bread, baked goods and canned goods. We even have a vendor who sells her own organic body care items!
