The air smelled of fruit. Fresh Fruit. Fresh Vegetables. All at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market on Yorkmont
So you’d like to know where your food comes from? Talk to the farmers who grew them- North Carolina and South Carolina growers come together under two barn like structures to sell, just about everything grownin the area, from watermelons to bok choy, cilantra ($1.00) per large bundle to fresh zucchinni, cucumbers and corn.
So how much would this amount of produce cost at Harris Teeter?
3 large tomatoes, 2 yellow squash, 2 zucchini, 1 avocado, 2 pints blueberries, 4 ears of corn, 1 baby bok choy, 1 bundle cilantro, 1 celery, 1 cantaloupe one heavy bag $16.61. Who says fresh has to cost more?
You can try their fresh jams, honey and nuts. OR, grass fed chicken and beef- imagine no human growth hormones or antibiotics.
I know it will in the offseason, but here eliminate the middleman, and come have fun a the Charlotte Regional Farmers market.
So how much is organic? We’ll investigate next time.
See you at the market!
Got to be NC Agriculture!
