Postal Service to Issue Fruits and Vegetables Stamps Friday

Local residents know that Bakersfield is located in one of the world’s largest agricultural areas, producing crops that feed the world.  How better to show your support for those who grow local fruits and vegetables than using the new Fruits and Vegetables stamps, debuting this Friday from the Postal Service?

The U.S. Postal Service has captured the classic beauty of still-life paintings in a booklet of 20 stamps featuring ten stunning portraits of fruits and vegetables.  Each stamp features a collection of one kind of fruit or vegetable: red and black plums, heirloom and cherry tomatoes, carrots, lemons, blueberries, red and green grapes, lettuces, strawberries, eggplants, and figs. 

The Postal Service is hosting a virtual First Day of Issue Ceremony for the Fruits and Vegetables Forever® stamps. This virtual ceremony will be carried on the Postal Service’s social media channels, Facebook and Twitter on Friday, July 17 at 8 a.m. Pacific Time.
