There’s nothing that screams ‘summer is here’ quite like the arrival of fresh fruit at local farmers’ markets, and our friends at Steve & Dan’s Fresh BC Fruit are gearing up for a summer full or delicious, fresh fruit from their farm in Oliver, BC. The first to arrive – strawberries! We are so excited that their strawberries will be available for purchase by the end of the month.
Strawberries are packed with vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. They are also sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, and low-calorie. Did you know a single serving of strawberries provides more vitamin C than an orange? They are also among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity.
Of course we love to enjoy strawberries on their own, but they are also great with yogurt and granola, dipped in chocolate, or added to a salad.
You can find Steve & Dan’s products at farmers’ markets throughout the city. Want even more fresh fruit? Steve & Dan’s are launching a weekly fruit Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box for the summer. That means 15 weeks of fresh fruit! Check out their website for more information and to sign up before June 25!
