Why go elsewhere when everything is *here*? Supporting local just makes sense!

I look forward to going to the farmers market knowing that the food I buy was grown and raised by conscientious farmers who care about the health of their consumers. I enjoy eating these foods because they are hormone and pesticide free and that they will taste so much better than commercially grown foods. I hope these foods will always be available and that local farmers will be able to continue to operate.

I love local produce. It tastes fresher and better. And saves on gas and emissions because it doesn't have to be tranported.

Buying local makes sense because I am supporting businesses or farmers in my area which in turn keep transporting costs down which conserves energy & resources. Go Green!

Buying local foods is a way to support the local community. Eating fresh,in-season,local foods is what our bodies were created to do. Our bodies are healthier and stronger because of it.

We can find local cherries, apples, peaches, almonds, milk, and all sorts of great produce at the local farmers market. There is definitely a difference in quality...for the better.

My family often buys from local producers to give back to our community, get super fresh food, and try unique products national companies either wouldn't dare or are years away from marketing.

I love buying local because it supports smaller companies and the food is fresh. It's nice to know where your food comes from also. In this tough economy I like knowing that the little companies are being supported. =)

I love and always favor local producers of food - whether it's produce, baked goods, homemade goodies, etc. Fresher is superior in all ways - for taste as well as health. Also, we need to support our locals and help their businesses thrive and grow.
