Do you have a CSA (community supported agriculture) program near you?
Basically, you pay a certain fee (usually about $30 a week or every other week) to have a box of fresh, organic produce delivered to you or brought to a pickup site near you. The farm then sends you whatever they have in season by picking it (usually the day before) and putting in a box or basket for you. The produce is fresh, tastes incredible, and is usually organic. Many CSAs have additional programs - one can send eggs with your weekly order, another sends the "fresh herb of the month". Most also include newsletters with ideas about how to cook the things they send. This week, my CSA box had:
Sugar Snap Peas
Mmmmm. Seriously yummy. And its a win-win situation - you get great, local, organic produce and usually pay less than you would have at the store. (I pay 92 dollars to get four of these boxes a month (23 dollars a week), and I was spending WAY more on fruits and veggies at the store than that...now I usually just have to supplement with a little bit of fruit from the farmers market). In addition, you get to try veggies and fruits you've never tried before, because you don't get a ton of choice about what comes in the boxes (although they do let you call and substitute something else if your box contains something you are allergic and/or vehemently opposed to). You learn how to cook new things while supporting organic, sustainable farming practices.
Check out Local Harvest to see if you have a CSA nearby that will deliver to you. I know they aren't just available in agricultural communities...my sister gets one delivered in Washington DC!
