Where can I buy fresh fruit that doesn’t grow in my area?


Q. Is there a place that I can order fresh fruit that does not grow in my area, such as figs , but not the kind you get in the stores for about .75 each.? I grew up in the south, but miss some of the summer fruits.


A. The internet has definitely opened a door for getting things we used to no be able to. However, it usually does not come at a cheaper price than the stores when you are looking at shipping fresh produce that is not local. I would encourage you to do a little bit of research online to see if you can find a community supported agriculture (CSA) business or a farmer that packs and ships produce. Make sure to watch your shipping prices and double check how much you are paying per pound online compared to in the store.
