Buying local produce = jobs for our country's men and women. We need to support our hard-working and oftentimes generational farmers.

I love supporting local producers because entrepreneurs don't just talk - they do - and risk all in the doing! For this, and a quality product, they deserve our support.

Local food is the best! It's fresher, tastier, and healthier. Plus you get to support your community.

Local produce: tomatoes and other fruit are tastier, know that it is fresh, proud that it is locally grown, help local farmers to sustain to allow for available produce in future

I have been eating "healthy" for years, but when I was on chemotherapy for breast cancer, I discovered just how sensitive my body was to unnecessary and "poisonous additives" that are contained in many popular foods. I would become quite ill. That sensitivity has lasted, and although I have a great appetite for healthy foods, I cannot tolerate the "junk". I love Whole Foods where I can trust what I eat on a consistent basis, and as a confirmed "foodie", I have a large range of new and wonderful products to try and enjoy. I am also a gardener and really appreciate the support you give to local producers.

The producers are the hub of the organic-agrarian complex decentrally instituted.

I'm lucky enough to live in Southern California, where we have great growing weather year-round. I love the local strawberries, bok choy, citrus, avocados, and even local mussels and oysters that I'm able to get at my neighborhood WF.

I love buying local because I know I am supporting good people who work hard in my community. Not to mention the fact that local produce and meat is so fresh and beautiful, such a big difference from the mass produced stuff at other stores!

Buying local means supporting my neighbors! In order for a community to thrive we need to help the small farms and business. Keeping our dollars right here in our own backyard is the best way to do it.

Love local food because I know it's fresh and wholesome. Makes me feel like I'm honoring my ancestors by eating what was around me as they did back then.
