buy local, organic food
Even though it's a challenge to buy everything from local sources, I love to know where my food is coming from. For example, I'm on a first name basis with everyone in the produce department, and love to hear every juicy tidbit regarding the farmers they buy from… I've even gotten to know the names and stories of the people they buy from, which for certain produce they carry, happen to be family farms (yes, local is possible from the grocery store)! I love farmers markets, and do prefer them over any other market… I always shop local as much as possible!
Locally grown organic food…
…is fresher, healthier, and tastes better!
…is seasonal, allows you to be more in touch with what you should naturally be consuming, while getting a healthy variety
…supports local farmers
…is better for the environment
know your food!
Big companies are buying up small, local organic food providers.
The quality of our food supply is at risk… we must continue to support our local farmers!
