Epicurious on Fresh Produce

March 9, 2011

 

 

I came across a great website, Epicurious, that I thought you’d find helpful. Epicurious offers an interactive map that you can click on to see what fresh produce is available in your area at local markets. This nifty tool makes budgeting and everyday meal and special event planning easier. In addition, Epicurious also has recipes.
