My 'local favorite' is apples. Every fall I look forward to making pies with the local fall apples.

I can't get enough local produce! Greens in the spring, tomatoes and peaches in the summer and apples in the fall.

Maui Cattle Company: grass fed beef is our favorite, economical and knowing I am feeding my family nutritional meat from our local producers. Whole Foods thank you for providing healthy products locally.

Indian Wild Rice from Chippewa Lakes is the best wild rice I have ever tasted. It's wonderfully nutty, fluffy and cooks in 20 minutes. Beats all other wild rice hands down. http://www.indianwildrice.com/

I love fresh tortilla chips, and I applaud Whale Tails' ecological mission.

I am an employee at Emory Healthcare. Every Tuesday Emory University invites locate producers to come on campus to sell their products. I've bought some very good breads, honeys, cheeses & salsas. I hope the university continues to invite local producers to the campus.

In California, all local produce are great, my all time favorite is WATERMELONS. I eat about one a week when there are an abundance.

My favorite local item in Naples, Florida is Honeybell citrus. They are so juicy I just stand over the sink and eat them!

My local fave is Michigan wine. We make some delicious Rieslings, Gewürztraminers and sparkling wines. Mmmm!

Tomatoes are my favorite buy, but I buy as much as I can that is produced locally. I look for the signs/labels to support our local farmers.

If it comes from the farmers market, fresh, in-season, local, organic, no weird ingredients - then that's my favorite!

I love, love, love the Cowgirl Creamery (locally produced/small dairy) cheeses from San Francisco, CA. Who knew I could end up getting them at Whole Foods in Maine? They also have a nice ricotta from a Vermont dairy, but I am waiting with bated breath for the day they manage to get Cowgirl's fresh ricotta in Maine. Now that would be a coup! :) Thanks for offering so many nice choices, WF, especially some local-style stuff from my former home in California that I didn't know I could get in the Maine store.

This time of year, my absolute favorite local product is (are?) fresh, slightly tart, juicy, crisp Macoun, Macintosh, Paula Red, and Jonamac apples! They usually come from not-too-distant New York State farms, are sold at the local greenmarkets, and are absolutely DELISH! I also love the Cortlands, which I use for making baked apples. YUM!!!

My favorite local products are the Primavera tamales, especially the pumpkin and white cheddar! Makes a great, easy meal for one person or four! Also Three Twins ice cream, and Straus organic dairy products.

I feel so fortunate to live in an area surrounded by awesome local foods and products! My family is able to make the local choice in nearly 100% of our purchases!

I'll take on most any locally grown fruit or veggie. Of course, in Pennsylvania we have fantastic farms and the tomatoes tend to be fabulous and tasty for most of the year.

Being from Wisconsin, my favorite local product is fresh cheese curds! You can't get squeaky curds anywhere else!

Whole Foods in Sacramento sells the best free-range hot dogs ever. I'm mostly vegetarian and eat the terrific local fruit and veggies, but these are hard to resist.
