When you buy local fruits and veggies, you’ll enjoy some of the best flavours the season has to offer. When possible, Sobeys carries local produce – any produce grown within your province is considered to be local. In-season produce is picked at the height of its freshness and is often more abundant, so you may see a drop in prices that will help you stretch your budget further (especially if you freeze and preserve to save foods for the rest of the year). Another plus? Supporting Canadian growers feels pretty good too!
