Try to buy organic vegetables – especially local if possible. They taste better, they’re better for your health, the environment and everything else. If you buy packaged produce that says it is pre-washed, wash it anyway. Don’t trust them! Wash your produce!
To New Yorkers - The market at
Union Square is a great place to buy local organic produce and it’s opened on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. We’re spoiled now with produce from everywhere in the world at our fingertips, but you should give it a try. It’s worth it. You can't get there? There’s always Whole Foods, Fairway, Trader Joes etc.
