While something as commonplace as fresh fruit and vegetables seems too ordinary and mundane to spend a day celebrating, let alone an entire month — it’d almost be like saying, “June is Getting Stuck in Traffic on The 101 Month” — if you think about it a bit, eating a fresh piece of fruit or a crisp vegetable might be a little more unique that you’d think.

Hopefully if you’re reading this blog, it wasn’t that long ago. But still, probably a bit too far in the past than you’d care to admit. So today, to celebrate Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month, here’s a gallery of some local places where you can get your fresh produce and begin filling in some of those somewhat-neglected parts of the food pyramid.
