With these sweet berries, you can make smoothies, top off your oatmeal, add them to pancakes, or even sprinkle some on top of your salad for a fresh, summer taste. Locally, you can pick your own berries at Ward’s Berry Farm, located at 614 South Main Street in Sharon, MA. Check out their website for more information! http://www.wardsberryfarm.com/index.html.

 

Bell Peppers!

Bell peppers are naturally fat free, saturated fat free, cholesterol free, low sodium, low in calories, and high in vitamin C. Some delicious recipes to use them in are dicing them and adding them to salads for a pop of color, stuffing them with rice, beans, and meat, and baking them, or grilling them with some olive oil to make the perfect side at your next cookout. You can grab some fresh peppers at Flint Farm Stand in Mansfield, MA. Their website lists all of the fresh vegetables you can get from them http://www.flintfarmstand.com/fresh-vegetables.html.
Tomatoes!

Tomatoes ripen perfectly over the summer, and you can find countless ways to incorporate them into your favorite meals. Whether you want to throw them into a quick salad, stuff them, bake them, make sauce or soup from them, or just eat them right off the vine, they’re a healthy and delicious snack. The Verrill Farm has everything from cooking classes to tomato tasting, and they’re not too far in Concord, MA. Their website has tons of information http://www.verrillfarm.com/heirloom.html.

 

Honeydew, Watermelon, and Cantaloupe!

High in vitamins, these sweet fruits make the perfect dessert all summer long. Carve them out, juice them, chop them up to snack on them, or add them to smoothies. They are at their peak this summer, and C.N. Smith Farm in East Bridgewater has been selling them for over 80 years http://cnsmithfarminc.com/.
