It’s easy to eat more fruits and vegetables when you shop at the farmers market. The fruits and vegetables are fresh, local, and in season. Most produce found at the grocery store travels an average of 1500 miles to reach your plate, so shopping your local market to find great-tasting foods that travel a short distance guarantees an easy way to make healthy food choices for both you and the environment. The Farmers Market Cookbook offers recipe inspiration for 16 different fruits and vegetables commonly found at farmers markets, along with selection and storage tips.  The cookbook is a perfect Nutrition Education Reinforcement Item (NERI) to encourage healthy behavior while cooking meals.

The cookbook includes 34 simple recipes that utilize seasonal, farm-fresh produce. A selection of recipes include:

• Chunky Applesauce
