As the season warms up and we all start heading back outside, most of us are also working on getting rid of the residual sluggishness and less than healthy habits left behind by a long, cold winter. One way to get your body and mind energized again is to ramp up your diet with all of the fresh fruits and vegetables you could desire! One of the major perks May, and the later Spring season, is that as we come back to life, so does the earth; allowing farmers markets and farm stands to offer an extended line of the freshest and healthiest product available.

Take a look at May’s produce list, and then check out the listing for the farmers market closest to you!
May Vegetables: okra, zucchini, rhubarb, artichokes, asparagus, spring peas, broccoli, and lettuce.
May Fruits: strawberries, blueberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, and nectarines.
