Is there anything in your hometown thats known for being the freshest around?

In oklahoma, we get a lot of pears and peaches.. Some of the best peaches you'd ever have in your life..

Ive had them every season my whole life and I take it for granted when Im on a trip and have them and realize how awful they are! lol

What about you?

georgia peaches. The ones from trees. The ones that come from their mothers I only wish I could say are fresh.

I live in the rural region of texas so we get pretty much everything fresh or home grown.
my faves would be the heirloom tomatoes and cucumbers.
and I cant forget the meat lol.

I'm in the Farm hub of NJ, I can get just about every vegetable or fruit you can think of.

Namely this summer I picked up corn, tomatoes, cucumbers.

Also, venison and pheasant for the meat category.

Our family grows a ton of veggies from sweet corn, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, lettuce, green beans, peas, lima beans, squash, cucumbers, onions and probably some other stuff.

I love summers in Ohio for this reason

Salinas is a 15 minute drive from Monterey - the salad bowl of the U.S. and I believe the biggest strawberry producer as well.

Miss that area, some of the best roadside farmers stands around. Not to mention some of the restaurants there.

Here in Hawaii I'd have to say seafood and pineapples. The pineapples here are cheap and delicious. Drive out to some of the rural areas and you can get some good mangos, apple bananas and all kinds of tropical fruit.

Smithfield Ham is about 40 minutes away from me. Been in the plants a bunch of times. We also have great peanuts here. Planters, Whitleys, Williamsburg Peanut Shop, and Feridies.

Tons of seafood since I'm on the York River. Scallops are awesome and Yorktown Pub has the best crabcake sandwich around. Our tuna steaks are supurb and Rockfish are starting to run as well.

St. George's brewery is about 20 minutes away and if you're an Anheuser Busch fan, their Williamsburg Brewery is here.

And then add the hundreds of Virginia Wineries......
