It as almost makes them believe all the produce is fresh and was grown somewhere not far from city. But most of the time its far from that. Still quality is in local foods. Good post mate. Good Day!

No one has bothered to mention that local farmers, unable to sell in bulk, almost always charge more for their product.

Talking with your store’s produce manager might encourage him or her to bring in a bigger variety of local offerings.

At first I didn’t think I would really notice a difference, but since I recently moved to a location right next to a small weekly farmer’s market, I have started eating vegetables on their own – without any dressings or fixings! I love the taste of a fresh cucumber or a plain cooked sweet potato from the market!
