One of my favorite things about summer is fresh produce. There's nothing better than fresh vegetables from the Farmer's Market. A simple tomato sandwich is a fantastic summer lunch.
On the back of my new Summer 2010 Lilly Pulitzer catalog, I found the following:
"Did you know? If you are not sure where to buy tasty, local products, consider signing up for a CSA which stands for community supported agriculture. You can essentially buy a membership with a participating farmer in exchange for seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season."
If you live in the DC/MD/VA area, I highly recommend The Big White Barn Produce. I introduced this farm to you last week. Their variety is amazing and the produce is so delicious.
As a special treat for Maryland Pink and Green readers, The Big White Barn is offering an incredible giveaway! One lucky winner who leaves a comment on the link provided will win a CSA for the 2010 season. That's 22 weeks of fresh produce! The winner can pick up the subscription at any farmer's market where Big White Barn is found or directly from them at the farm. Sunday is the last day to enter this giveaway. The contest ends at midnight and the winner will be announced on Monday. You can leave your comment to enter with this link.
Buy fresh, buy local!
