Buy seasonal produce

Spent a bit of time at the Byward market in Ottawa this week.

Such beautiful food. And buying local produce in season saves money and makes sense. For $26, I purchased a dozen corn, 4 tomatoes, 4 cucumbers, 4 zuchinni, a bunch of carrots, 2 pints of rasperries, 2 pints of strawberries and the biggest bunch of basil I’ve ever seen.

If produce is not in season, it’s probably from far away, over priced and not as tasty as it could be. So the question really is, why do we bother with that stuff anyway.
