It’s fresh produce season in Delaware! We wait for this all year and the best farm fresh produce and it is available in abundance right now!
When eating a salad or a sub (hoagie) in the middle of winter, we’ve all said, “oh how I miss summer tomatoes!”
Well, all the fresh produce grown on local farms in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey is on shelves now and the best place to get the freshest in the 302 is at New Castle County Farmers Markets.
