Sometimes there's nothing better than a good sweet potato. Not only does this delicious tuber enhance dishes ranging from savory to sweet, it's also chock full of disease-fighting vitamins and minerals. If you're an athlete, sweet potatoes are a great addition to your diet for their cramp-busting potassium. Additionally, their high level of vitamin A make sweet potatoes great for your skin. Stock up on this local superfood by visiting Indian Springs Farmers Co-op's table at our Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday market.
