Consumers have a number of reasons for shopping at farmers markets. However, being able to purchase produce that’s fresh from the garden typically tops the list. Despite its freshness, food safety practices should remain the same as for produce purchased at the grocery store. K-State Research and Extension food scientist Karen Blakeslee discusses the safe handling of produce and offers tips for preserving fresh fruits and vegetables so they can be enjoyed when they’re no longer readily available.
