What could be better for my family, community and planet than using fresh, clean, beautiful food grown and harvested locally? I'm lucky, we have access to all types of locally grown produce, raw dairy products, fresh eggs and humanely/responsibly produced meats and fish! YAY Central Coast California and Whole Foods!

Buying local has many benefits -- it increases the income local farmer's make, it gives the buyer an opportunity to know where and how the food was grown, it creates awareness for the importance of taking care of our Earth, it creates interest and opportunities for healthy cooking options, it gives urban and suburban children a new learning opportunity with field trips to local farms, it creates a true sense of community and it helps the local economy overall. Buy local!

Local farming is what eating right is all about. Besides the smaller carbon footprint, it certainly doesn't get any fresher than this!

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.

It is a 'no brainer' on many levels. You are helping the environment as well as supporting local business. The best!

Love to support local farms and local products. We all help each other by supporting these farms and families so that can continue to enjoy the fresh and healthy foods. We love Whole Foods for that same reason.

I love to support local farmers and there is nothing better than truly fresh and ripe organic fruits and veggies from my own community (as if they come from my own back yard...yum)!! When I know where my food comes from, it makes me feel more confident and the local fresh foods ALWAYS look and taste better to me:) GO LOCAL!!!!

I love my local producers because I'm a face-to-face kind of girl. Knowing where my food comes from and trusting that the quality will be excellent is great in my book!

I'm pretty excited about this program. Local farmers are SO important, and this is a great incentive for them to keep doing what they're doing and not sell out to the big businesses. Yay Whole Foods!
