I received an Old El Paso prize pack for review and the opportunity to host this giveaway from Old El Paso through MyBlogSpark. No other compensation was received, and opinions are my own.
Living around rural Pennsylvania, I have long held a deep appreciation for the work done by independent farmers. Adding many fresh vegetables to our daily diets is important, and knowing that they were grown naturally and without harmful chemicals can provide us with a unique ease and assurance that we really are doing good for our bodies.
During the summer months, farmer’s markets pop up all over the area. It doesn’t matter what grocery store you prefer to shop at, produce doesn’t get any fresher than what you can find at your local farmer’s market; that is unless you grow your own produce. Not only do you get the freshest produce available and know it was grown by someone who put love and very little else into it, but by purchasing locally-grown produce, you are supporting the people in and around your own community, and that is consumerism at its finest.
As disappointing as it may be, summer is drawing to a close, but you can still find a good farmer’s market that stays open right up until the chilly fall weather takes over. End your summer on a high note with fresh produce from your local farmer’s market and use Old El Paso to lend some bold, delicious flavor to those veggies.
