Love summer’s fresh tomatoes and peaches, peppers and cucumbers? You’re in luck.

This morning, Gov. Jack Markell declared the beginning of Delaware Local Produce Week. The effort, a non-partisan initiative created by Rep. Lyndon Yearick, R-Camden-Woodside, aims to promote the benefits of buying and eating locally-produced fruits and vegetables and to foster relationships between consumers and farmers.

Opportunities to participate abound: Delaware has plenty of farmers’ markets, including 80 farmstands and 20 farms where you can pick your own produce.
