Now that we are out and about a bit more, remember to shop at local farmer’s markets if you feel comfortable doing so. A typical carrot travels 1,838 miles to reach your dinner table (Sustainable Table). Think about what that means in terms of fuel to get it to you, not to mention time.
There’s nothing like the freshness of produce that’s been picked just before it comes to your dinner table. We are fortunate to have nearby many farmers’ markets that provide a wide variety of produce grown in the Hudson Valley, as well as sustainably farmed meats and eggs, artisanal breads and cheeses, and condiments such as jams and honey, even local wine!
