ILLINOIS -- One of the best parts of summer is eating fresh veggies and fruits. Those Illinois grown foods are now in more than 300 grocery stores across the state. It's part of the state's Where Fresh Is campaign.

Stores selling the produce will have a special banner to let customers know. Residents are being asked to spend $10 of our food budget on produce grown in the state.
