By purchasing seasonally local foods, you reduce and possibly eliminate the environmental damage caused by shipping foods thousands of miles, your food dollar goes directly to the farmer, and your family reaps the health benefits of eating fresh, unprocessed fruits and vegetables.
This is also a great chance to try something new. The food also tastes better because food that is harvested locally keeps their full flavor.
