Eat in Season & Save

by Dual Income No Kids on October 30, 2008 · 0 comments

While it might be a no brainer for some, eating fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season, particularly those that are local, can do a great deal to help your bottom line.

In honor of the harvest season, try checking out a local farmer’s market this weekend. You can enjoy juicy apples, tasty butternut squash for soup, and don’t forget to roast the pumpkin seeds from your jack-o-lantern!

Even if you aren’t buy local, you can still have your grocery budget go a great deal further by skipping out on fresh strawberries until summer rolls around.

You can also feel good about supporting local produce and doing your part to cut down on fuel prices for transporting food products an average of 1,550 miles.

Readers: If you have any good buys at your local markets we’d love to hear about it!
