Citrus fruits include oranges, tangerines, lemons, grapefruit, mandarins, pomelos and more. They’re in season and several varieties grow profusely in our Valley.
Citrus Fruits Strengthen Immunity
Citrus fruits are an excellent source of vitamin C, a nutrient that strengthens the immune systemand keeps your skin smooth and elastic.
Provide a Variety of Nutrients
One medium orange has all the vitamin C you need in a day as well as good amounts of Bvitamins, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and copper. They also have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Because juice has more sugar, fresh fruit is the healthier choice.
And Are a Good Source of Fiber
Fiber improves digestive health and aids weight loss. Oranges are particularly high in the kind of fiberthat helps lower cholesterol levels.
Our Sunday, Certified Farmers’ Market offers a variety of locally grown organic citrus fruits, produce, eggs, honey, freshly-baked breads and more.
