Fruits and veggies are essential to maintaining a healthy body, but produce can lose some of its value when it’s stored for an extended period of time. By choosing local produce, you can ensure that you’re consuming the freshest, highest quality food! Furthermore, local produce generally offers richer flavour than imported fruits and vegetables. Our fall produce favourites include apples, carrots, pears, quash, beets, and potatoes! All these crops are produced by local Ontario farms.
