Florida figs are now in season! Don’t miss your chance to eat these locally grown, healthy, and delicious treats. If you have a friend with a fig tree, you’re in luck!
Figs are a healthy source of fiber and the important minerals magnesium and potassium. They also contain vitamin A, C and B Vitamins.
Eating locally when you can is essential. So many of the foods we eat are from far away. Eating locally is healthier for you and your community. Foods with low food miles (the distance they travel to get to you) are more nutritious than foods that have to be packed up, stored, and travel to the final destination. Eating more locals foods helps keep you grounded and can aid in immune system strength.
Fresh figs ready to eat! Wash gently, twist off stems, then split or cut in half.
