Stopped by the Union Square Green Market today and picked up these beauts 🍒🍒🍒
I love cherries but they are usually so expensive at the grocery store. Buying these at the farmers market is not only so much more affordable but also comes with several health benefits.
Eating local means that the produce was picked at its peak ripeness vs. non local produce which is picked before it is ripe so it will ripen during its long travel or once it’s sitting at the grocery store. Eating local also means eating seasonally and eating produce at at its optimal nutritional levels.
