Worried about where your onions are coming from these days? I think we should all be worried about where all our food is coming from, not just these days, but all days, past, present and future.
We all know that buying locally-grown fresh produce from our farm stands here on the Old Mission Peninsula is always the best option, and we’re in luck when it comes to onions.

Local Yokels Farm Stand – I’ve previously fawned over their strawberries, asparagus and other produce – has big bunches of all kinds of onions, including white, red, green onions and probably some others I’m forgetting.
We put onions in pretty much everything and brought home some of their white onions today, along with some cucumbers.
Also, onions are very good for us. They help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, protect against many forms of cancer, and contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, all of which are good for a variety of reasons.
Also at Local Yokels Farm Stand today were tomatoes, hot peppers, herbs, summer squash and lots more. I keep hoping to find raspberries, but they’re always sold out by the time I get myself over there.
Local Yokels is located at 13130 Center Road, on the right before you get to the Peninsula Township Hall if you’re headed north. If you have any questions, feel free to call them, (231) 223-7900, or visit their website here.
