I was sent this bounty of fresh local fruit and vegetables from the PR reps at Loblaws. A promotional grab bag to be sure, nevertheless it's one I can get behind.
This cornucopia of fresh fruit and veg arrived in late summer, so the photo and its contents are a bit out of date, but in a late-breaking development, I just got in from shopping at Metro and without even trying every bit of fresh produce I bought was locally grown, including kale, lettuce, potatoes, celery, squash, apples and grapes.
I know we’re all sick to death about hearing that old “buy local” refrain. But when they make it this easy (and tasty), why wouldn’t you?
