Oooh Honey, You Never Looked So Good!

Sweeten up your daily routine with some pure, nutritious raw honey from the Cerritos Farmers Market today!

As the holiday season approaches, try sweetening up some of your favorite recipes with a touch of nutritious raw honey. 

What gives raw honey an extra boost is that it has not undergone heating, processing or pasteurization. As a result, it is more nutritious because it retains many of the natural vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Our bodies can benefit more from the nutrients and anti-inflammatory properties that haven't been stripped away by any excessive processing. 

At the Cerritos Farmers Market, you can find a wide selection of raw honey at the Energy Bee Farm stand. The choices include buckwheat, sage, avocado, orange blosson and wildflower. There is a variety of darker and lighter honey (darker ones have a more potent honey flavor) to suit all tastes and usages. They also sell "honey stix" (thin tubes of honey) that are great treats to add in your kids' lunch boxes or to bring to work for an afternoon boost.  

Honey can also be used as a natural remedy for wounds and minor ailments. Bee pollen, which is also available at the stand, is often used to counteract allergy symptoms. It may be a great natural remedy for many who suffer from allergies during the fall! 

Try using honey in the kitchen by trying some delicious honey recipes or adding a teaspoon of sweetness to your morning coffee or tea.  Stop by the Cerritos Farmers Market between 8 a.m. and noon today and bring some raw honey home!

* The Cerritos Farmers Market is located in the Cerritos Towne Center at Park Plaza Drive & Park Plaza West, just north of the .

I love their Sage honey! It is perfect for all occasions! The price is very affordable for families and I really appreciate the quality they deliver! I would pay more but I am glad to get a very good value. Try to find a 3 # glass jar of RAW sage honey for less than $15! I did not pay that but that is about the going rate. Now go to any health food store, even the so called discount local health food store and you will see an 8 ounce jar of honey for $16.99 and it is from the Himilayas. Now I have nothing against the Himilaya's and in fact much love and respect them but I want honey from a local source. How is honey shipped thousands of miles through different altitudes and climates going to stay Raw?! I support local American small business because it is good for our health and our economy!
