How many road trips do you take in the summer? Do you kick yourself for stopping at gas stations and rest stops and coming away with more junk food with ingredients you can't even pronounce...should you really eat that stuff? While we all rely on the occasional candy bar or chips to make it through the New Jersey Turnpike, we're here to recommend something else: pack a small cooler with cleaned, trimmed fresh fruits and vegetables. On a recent eight-hour drive, we had a sack of freshly cleaned green beans from Shlagel Farms, cheese crackers, and peanut butter packs. The favorite? The green beans. They were sweet and crunchy and really wonderful.
This week, visit Shlagel Farms at Cheverly Community Market for perfect road trip snacks, as well as great produce for those holiday meals (and every other day, too!) Eileen will have kale, collard greens, broccoli, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, peppers, blueberries, green beans, cabbage, beets, and maybe -- just maybe -- a few surprises (cross your fingers!) It's the best time of the year to eat fresh and healthy -- and we want to help you do it!
