Do You Have Tips for Buying Fresh Fruits and Veggies?

When buying fresh fruits and vegetables, consider these tips when deciding what vegetables and fruits to buy:

  • Purchase fresh fruits and vegetables when in season as prices tend to be lower.
  • Shop at local farmers’ markets because local varieties are usually fresher.
  • Handle fresh produce carefully. Bruised and damaged fruits and vegetables decay more quickly.
  • Produce loses nutrients the longer it sits around, so try to buy fresh what can be used up within a week.
