Chemicals used for growing food are stunting nutritional value

According to MSNBC, many of our fruits and vegetables are losing nutritional value. Our produce isn't as healthful as produce grown 30 years ago. The article shares some ways to avoid unhealthy produce. One way to find produce with the proper amount of nutrients is to visit local farmer's markets.

In the Northern Michigan area, here are the times and dates of the local farmer's markets:

Locations of farmer’s markets late spring – fall 2010.

Traverse City – Sat. & Wed. – 8 am-12 pm

Suttons Bay – Saturday 9 am-1 pm

Leland – Thursday 8 am – 12 pm

Glen Arbor – Tuesday 9 am-1 pm

Empire – Saturday 9am- 1pm

I will update this list if any changes happen. In addition, if you are looking for healthily raised meats, visit The Hubbell Farm and make an order.
