Sink your teeth into locally grown fruits and veggies. 

It’s time to trash the idea of scrunching your nose at the serving of veggies on your plate. … Agriculture is North Carolina’s No. 1 industry (!), and we’ve got a slew of locally grown goods—making “vegetables delectable” without having to douse them in ranch or take a trip to the Hidden Valley. 

And when you buy produce in season, it’ll taste even more radishing. We tapped our friends at Got to Be NC for the lineup of local produce you can find at the State Farmers Market this month (see caption), or at the other three state-supported markets—Asheville, Colfax, Charlotte—in addition to local pop-up markets scattered around town and the state. And keeping clean eating un-beet-able, buying produce in-season comes with an array of benefits—from cost to nutritional value and taste. Keepin’ it fresh, indeed! gottobenc.com
