Fresh from Florida | Shopping Locally Grown

Sunday, March 11, 2018

This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however all opinions expressed are my own. 

I have lived in Florida for almost eight years now and this is by far my favorite time of the year.  I moved here from Texas and truly had no idea how much is grown locally and I've been buying locally grown ever since.  The weather is wonderful this time of the year and all of Florida's produce is fresh and in-season; from the strawberries to the bell peppers to the tomatoes and mushrooms.  My mouth is watering just thinking of all the delicious things I can make with those fresh ingredients. 

My girls love this time of the year too and especially love when we get to go strawberry picking.  I love that when we can't make it to the strawberry fields, that I can just head over to my local Publix grocery store and find quality produce Fresh from Florida just by looking for the signs.

I love shopping locally because I know what I'm getting and I know where it's coming from-Florida farmers of course!  Being a mom of two toddlers, this is very important to me and Florida farmers make it easy for this to happen all year long.

Did you know that by shopping local produce, you are not only getting the best but you are helping our local community and farmers?  These strawberries are from Plant City, FL just north of where I live!

I really encourage you all to #followthefresh too and shop locally grown!   You can click here to go to Fresh from Florida's website and find so many ideas and recipes using Florida's fresh ingredients!  I can't wait to share one of my favorite recipes with you soon!
