Best places to buy vegetables

Without objection, the best place to buy vegetables is directly from farmers. Many of us don’t have that luxury, so we are limited to what we can find in our community or neighborhood. The best places to buy fresh vegetables are:

  • Pick-Your-Own Farm: this is by far the best option. You get to pick your own vegetables and work out (long walks) at the same time. The best way to find one is by browsing the internet. Many of them may be far away from your home, but if you plan it right by making a list of what you need, your trip will be fruitful. Also, a good idea is to check what they have available and what is in season before making the trip. All of them do recommend calling ahead for the most up-to-date picking availability and information before coming out to them.
  • Farmers Markets: if you are up for it, you won’t be disappointed. Those places are usually affiliated or connected farms, so they get their vegetables very quickly.
  • Local markets: ask one of the staff for delivery days so you can have the first pick. Many local markets advertise that they buy directly from farmers; look out for those.
  • Wholesale markets such as BJs, Costo, and Sam’s Club: with these places, you buy in bulk and save more. This option is not suitable for single people. It is also a good idea to find out delivery days.
  • Online shopping is also a good option: with Instacart you have several options. You can pick whatever supermarkets you want and check pricing and sales. Amazon Fresh also has some great deals on its products. Do check them out.

Vegetable recipes are important in meal planning

Vegetables are an important part of our diet. It is recommended to eat vegetables every day, and the consumption amount depends on your age, sex, height, and weight. If you are, for example, on a special diet or training, the amount will be different.

So, get out there and buy vegetables to stay healthy.
