I thought I would put it out there to those of you who like buying local fruits or eating healthy and have not researched places in your area that have fruit stands or farmer's markets. I went to Erickson's fruit stand the other day in Fairfield and it was really amazing. It is an entire farm with rows of corn to pick yourself, bell peppers waiting to be roasted on site, and apples waiting to be taken home! You walk along the fields and choose what you wish to buy, pick it from the tree or stalk or bush and take it home to enjoy! It is a great place to bring the kids and they also have a dahlia garden to choose you own bouqets. It just reminded me that there are often overlooked local grown good that we bypass everyday on the way to the supermarket where foods are from distant places and way more expensive!
