How long will it last in my fridge?
Unlike conventional produce, organic produce isn’t treated with harsh chemicals or preservatives, making it a healthier option for a clean-eating lifestyle. However, because organic produce isn’t treated, it will spoil faster than conventional produce. The good news is that by purchasing your produce at the Overland Park Farmers’ Market, you’re able to get the freshest produce possible. Check out this page to see how long your favorite fruits and veggies will last.
- Peppers storing tip: In the freezer, sliced peppers will maintain quality up to 12 months
- Kale storing tip: Don't wash or cut kale until you're ready to use it
Storage Tips (organic & no preservatives):
- You could steam your veggies within the first three days to kill bacteria, allowing you to store them slightly longer.
- Store squash and root veggies in a cool, dry place (but not the refrigerator).
- Store berries in a single layer wrapped in a paper towel to make them last longer.
- Store leafy greens in damp paper towels and allow them to breathe. Don’t crush under other produce.
- Keep these at room temp in a basket or woven container so air can circulate: apples, citrus fruit, potatoes, onions, avocados, tomatoes.
- When in doubt, ask! The best benefit in buying local is that you get to interact with the farmers and growers, who are experts on how to store their items.
- For meats, freeze when you get home and thaw in the fridge 1 day prior to cooking.
Clean Eating Basics:
