For this reason, it can be important to the economy and your bank balance, if you are able to source locally grown fruit and vegetables.
Ripe Near Me is a fabulous new website which enables you to search for home grown fruit, vegetables and herbs in your area. A local grower can list what produce they have available and the cost. This website also encourages the community to add their own home grown food for sale or offer it for free.
If you are looking to purchase some local food, have an abundance of vegetables you want to sell or just want to see what's available in your area take a look at the website
