Why Buy Local
You know where your food came from and you have direct contact with the producer (farm/farmers).
In-season produce is often cheaper than the supermarket equivalent, particularly when buying directly from the farmer.
You improve your diet by eating more vegetables and fruits.
Locally grown produce will be fresher and will last longer in your refrigerator.
Experience the world from your local farmers market. Small growers often sell unusual heirloom varieties that are difficult to find elsewhere.
Help the planet by reducing your carbon footprint. Less packaging means less plastic waste. Less transportation of food from distant locations saves fuel.
Support small businesses! Keep your dollars local by buying from local farmers and farm-stands.
