Everyone knows that fresh food is the best food. And I have the best food in the world in my hands, literally, here in Mallorca. Most of the fruits and vegetables sold in the markets are grown and picked here on the island. Produce shipped in from other countries is produce that is out of season in Mallorca.
Unlike Mallorca, people in the US buy produce grown in other surrounding countries. This food, however, is obviously not as fresh because you have to factor in the shipping and handling.
Plus, there is something so innately satisfying gained through eating food from the land in which you live. In addition to the fresh fruits and vegetables, most of the other food comes from the island as well. The meat, fish, wine, bread, and even ice cream are made here.
Needless to say, for those of you reading this at Holy Cross, Kimball and Crossroads will not be missed this year.
