If you've never bought produce from one of these before, then you're missing out on how much more flavorful a tomato, a red pepper, or an apple can taste compared to produce that's been sitting in the store's for a while after their long journey across country (and sometimes across the globe). It makes you wonder, if the flavor is mostly gone from the long-distance, store-bought variety, then what about the nutritional value?

Local Fruit and Veggie Stands
I'm a Master Naturalist and an outdoor enthusiast -- mostly kayaking, and I live on a Peninsula in the Chesapeake Bay. I'm the author of The Nature Fan, Nature Fan Activists, Green Earth Almanac, and Amanda's Geographic. Formerly, I ran the nationally syndicated column "National Green Activism" for The Examiner, and I was a key factor in the success of many campaigns.
