Tips On Storing Fresh Vegetables

The Bellevue Farmers Market offers a wide variety of locally grown produce at our market each Friday night. There’s nothing much better than a local, pesticide free, ‘homegrown’ tomato.  Particularly, a Cherokee Purple.  Purchasing your food at The Bellevue Farmers Market is not just an investment in local farms. It is an investment in your personal health. We want to help you protect your ‘investment’ for as long as possible. MyFitnessPal.com recently posted a chart with tips on storing fresh vegetables.

Meet Our Market Farmers – Walton’s Hill Farm

Walton’s Hill Farm

Walton’s Hill Farm is a small berry farm located in Robertson county.  We specialize in blueberries, but we also raise several varieties of ever bearing strawberries, blackberries and mulberries.  In late summer to early fall we will have apples, pears and muscadines to offer.  Fresh berries can be some of the most heavily sprayed food products that you can buy; but at Walton’s Hill, we use no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers.  We also work with a local commercial kitchen to produce all natural jams and jellies from our own harvest.  Follow us on Facebook for gardening and homestead tips and ideas at www.facebook.com/waltonshillfarm
