Citrus fruits and cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, radishes and leafy greens are fresh and in season at our Sunday Certified Farmers’ Market. With vitamin C and anti-oxidants, these fruits and vegetables are great for making blended juices to boost your immune system and to de-toxify during cold and flu season!
If you’re concerned about vegetable recalls including various types of lettuce and cauliflower, the Farmers’ Market offers some advice. You always have to be careful and wash vegetables thoroughly. The safest produce (other than growing your own vegetables) is usually direct from local farmers. According to the farmers market, some of the recalls and safety issues that occur are due to industrialization of food and the immense scale of production.
