Swiss Vegetable Growers Association
"If you don’t know about eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, you probably live as a hermit in the furthest reaches of a distant land! As an inhabitant of the Three-Lakes Region, I am lucky enough to live in a vegetable growing area where the farmers produce more than 40 kinds of vegetables. For example, the vegetable path enables children (and adults, for that matter) to discover our local produce. What’s more, many farms sell their crops directly to passers-by at reasonable prices. Lastly, you will meet the producers at the weekly regional markets. I advise you to take advantage of our farmers’ know-how and knowledge at every opportunity. Happy tasting!"
Vegetable markets: a variety of vegetable markets in the Three-Lakes Region.
Direct sales from farms: there is usually a sign outside the farm indicating which vegetables are for sale.
Pick your own fruit and vegetables: it is best to check the local newspapers, where the farmers advertise which vegetable/fruit can be picked.
