Be Smart. Buy Blueberries.

Don’t let the summer go by without buying some healthful Maine wild blueberries at the Stonington Farmers Market. There are only three more Fridays until the market ends, and the blueberries are going fast!

You can’t get these babies just anywhere. Wild blueberries are unique to eastern Maine, because of its rocky acidic soil and cool climate.

The wild blueberry is smaller and sweeter than its cousin, the high-bush blueberry. A Mainer will tell you high-bush blueberries are just wrong.

All blueberries are rich in antioxidants, which can help prevent disease. But wild blueberries have twice the antioxidants of high-bush blueberries.

New studies also suggest blueberries can improve memory in older adults.

Even when frozen, blueberries are still an excellent source of antioxidants. That’s why you want to order organic wild Maine blueberries in bulk from Blue Zee Farm. Talk to Renata Scarano about ordering some on the next Friday you’re at the Stonington Farmers Market. Renata runs the Blue Hill organic farm with her husband Mark and little girl Julia.

If you can’t make it to the Stonington Farmers Market, you can call Blue Zee at (207) 374-9976.
