  2. Nutritional value: Your food has the greatest nutritional content when it reaches peak ripeness, not to mention it tastes better!
  3. It’s more sustainable: Locally grown produce uses less fuel and energy to get the produce from farm to table. It the fruit and veg you buy is local and in season, there’s less on an environmental impact.
