Fresno Bee - Fresh Produce
I was looking through the Fresno Bee classifieds and, although unexpected, I was not completely surprised to find individuals post ads for their fresh produce. This Thursday listed under the Farmer's Marketplace almonds, dried apricots, peaches and figs. Fresh pomegranate juice, jelly, honey. Olive oil by the gallon, grapes, yams, persimmons and cherry juice. Sounds delicious. The best thing about buying local without shipping is that these goodies are at their best, truly ripe off the tree (or vine). So if you've order your Sunday Bee or get it every day, scan over the little Farmer's Market section and you might find someone down the street you can support in his/her gardening or farming efforts.
