Why Eat Seasonally?

Eat Tastier, Healthier Food

When you eat food grown locally, it is harvested at the peak of its season.  This results in the best tasting food.  Even better, local food is not stored in shipping containers, therefore it doesn’t spoil or lose its health benefits on its way to you!

Support Your Community

When you eat locally and seasonally, you are supporting members of your own community.  Buying from local farmers, ranchers, and artisans not only helps your neighbor but also puts money back into your local economy.

Enjoy Different Foods

Seasonal eating often leads to eating a wider variety of foods.  Instead of sticking to the same “go-to” veggies throughout the year, try eating whatever is in its peak season.  It’ll broaden your palate and expose you to new dishes and flavors!

Save Money

When you buy food during its peak season you are also buying food when its supply is most plentiful.  This is when it costs the least for producers to harvest and transport the food, and the savings get passed along to you.
