It’s great that New York City boasts over one hundred farmer’s markets, but what happens when they sell produce that’s from over one hundred miles away? This week on Let’s Get Real, Erica Wides talks seasonality- or the lack thereof. Find out how climate change is melting all of our seasons into one homogenous mush. How are unpredictable temperatures affecting farmers’ yields? Tune into this week’s episode to learn why bananas from New York or New Jersey might not be too much of a stretch in upcoming years. So grab those late season tomatoes and tune into Let’s Get Real! This program has been brought to you by Heritage Foods USA. Thanks to Pamela Royal for today’s music.
