Why Vegetables Taste Better From A Farmers Market Than A Grocery Store
Many people share a favorite summer and fall outing: perusing the local farmers' market. Getting weekly produce from the farmers’ market isn't only an excellent way to support the farmers in the local community, but it also adds fresher, tastier ingredients to meals.
Along with the abundant selection of regional and seasonal selections, the fruits and veggies at the local farmers' markets are usually riper than at chain stores. This is because the produce is allowed the time it needs to ripen fully before being picked and sold.
Produce from large grocery chains is typically picked before it is fully ripe. These businesses frequently ship their product across long distances, and by selecting produce before it reaches full ripeness, suppliers can guarantee that it won't go bad before it gets to the store.
