Tomatoes that traveled from halfway across the world to your supermarket don’t just have a huge carbon footprint, they often taste not-so-great. It’s well known that buying locally is an easy way to reduce greenhouse emissions and also enjoy fresher, tastier food. To help you find what’s in-season where you live, the free app “LocaVore” helps you find local farmers’ markets and lists what in-season produce items are currently being sold. You can also find recipes and other ideas for how to prepare these foods.
