Food For Thought: Don't Be Fooled – Stay Educated About Your Food Purchases – Last updated March 22, 2017
As Spring gets underway, roadside produce stands and farmers markets will be booming with customer traffic.

So, depending on your priorities when it comes to food, don't be afraid to keep the vendors honest by asking the right questions about how and where the food and flowers they are selling were grown.
