Buying Fresh...

As warmer weather appoaches, gas prices are going to continue to soar; we all know it,it is just a fact that has become part of our lives in the last couple of years. Gas prices spike sky high as soon as summer and vacation time roll around, but also ,that spike at the pump is going to be passed on to you, as the consumer, a second time around. When this spike takes place, it also makes your grocery bill go up as well as it takes more money for that food to reach the stores and onto the shelves. If at all possible, buy your produce from farmer's markets this year. It is not an uncommon sight  in the South to see a homemade sign that a gardner has put out, trying to sell their extra produce to make a buck or two. This produce tastes better because it is farm fresh, with no preservatives. The added benefit is it helps the little man, and this person is probably your neighbor or someone that you know. This helps the community and you know exactly where that produce came from, and,  lower prices for you since it cuts out your "corporate middle man." Better tasting food, lower prices, helping your fellow neighbor; sounds like a win- win situation to me. Happy shopping  y'all. :)
