Summer Solstice, Moving Ahead With the Local! – Local Challenge

So today is the Summer Solstice, and as I have written a Local Challenge article every Tuesday, I thought this Tuesday seemed all the more fitting to make a stance to begin early. In our household we decided to no longer purchase produce from a grocery store, only farm stands and farmers markets! So yesterday we made a trip to one of the farmstands in Ocean City, MD to purchase some items for this week. It is just the two of us this week, so I did not need to buy a lot, but how much fun to buy what is available instead of buying what is available to us, no matter the distance it travels.

Enjoy the summer, while enjoying fresh LOCAL fruits and veggies!
