BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FoodSaver®, the #1 vacuum sealing system in America, kicks off its "Save the Season™" initiative in three different cities this August. Farmers market lovers have the opportunity to preserve their fresh produce, meats and cheeses at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia on August 3rd, Chicago's Green City Market on August 10th, and the University District Farmers Market in Seattle on August 24th. The FoodSaver® brand's tent will provide vacuum sealer demonstrations, promotional giveaways, and a farmers market experience that will preserve the summer season.

Popular bloggers from each city will be demonstrating the ease and convenience of FoodSaver® vacuum sealers throughout the day. The FoodSaver® brand team is excited to host the bloggers from Healthy Bites and Frugal Philly Mom in Philadelphia, Making Time For Mommy and Couponing for 4 in Chicago, and Learn to Preserve and Kitchen Living with Coryanne in Seattle.

"We're thrilled to be directly supporting farmers markets in Philadelphia, Chicago and Seattle by preserving local farmers' freshest produce, meats and cheeses," said Ofelia Silva, Director of Marketing for the FoodSaver® Brand. "Our demonstrators are real-life women who understand the benefits of the FoodSaver® system. They know first-hand the benefits of vacuum sealing, and they are the perfect representatives to share their experiences with local farmers market shoppers."

The FoodSaver® system lets you "Save the Season™" while saving you money by preserving quality, taste, and freshness. With FoodSaver® products, produce can be picked at its peak ripeness and vacuum sealed for future use, locking in optimal flavor and freshness. By buying in bulk and on sale and preventing waste, FoodSaver® products can save families up to $2,700 per year, and keep food fresh up to five times longer than traditional storage methods.

The FoodSaver® brand also will be introducing the new FoodSaver® 4800 Series Vacuum Sealer, the 2-in-1 Food Preservation System! Offering more ways to seal and more ways to save, this system gives consumers the ability to preserve foods in both the long and short term with ease. Providing the functionality and convenience of two vacuum sealing appliances in one, this system works with FoodSaver® heat seal bags and rolls for long-term freezer storage and, with its retractable accessory adapter, consumers can use FoodSaver® FreshSaver® vacuum zipper bags, canisters and containers for short-term food preservation. In addition, a handy marinate mode infuses food with flavor in minutes instead of hours. Compact, upscale, and fully automatic, this appliance features an easy-open drawer with patented removable drip tray for easy clean-up.
