Thou shalt support thy local suppliers and farmers! Did you know it's the 11th commandment? :-)

As a mom with a special needs child it is important to me to give my kids nothing but the best. And the fact that it helps my local farms, markets and the enviornment is even more rewarding.

I am very fortunate to have a large farmers market in a small town. Organic produce, fresh caught seafood & free range eggs for less money than the processed, pesticide laden foods that are mass produced! How can you NOT shop locally??

anything produced in smaller batches is always better in flavor! I like to support smaller farms.

Local food is great because I know where its coming from. I don't trust non-local fruits and vegetables because of so many outbreaks and its great to know that we have wonderful markets in Milwaukee to give us delicious and healthy foods!

I love this store!! My son even had a school fieldtrip to the store to tell the kids about all the great healthy food you can find in the store.

I just returned from visiting my sister in California, where it was great fun to see their local products featured...including some amazing wines that were half the price of the local wineries!

I love being able to buy locally grown items all at one convenient location. I can do my grocery shopping and support my neighbors at the same time.

I like local producer foods because I know the quality. I also like to help my local economy by eating locally produced foods. I like to eat fresh vegetables and fruits and love to be able to find them at Whole Foods and local produce markets.

I like knowing I can actually talk to a local producer, see the site, and know that I am supporting a local business...

As a mother, I love to help Mother Earth by eating all natural, organic food. The feeling of buying and eating locally is a reward in itself.

I love my local producers because they remind me that we are all in this together. I love my local producers because they are my neighbors. I love my local producers because supporting them supports the very place where I live. I love my local producers for their integrity, quality, and nutritious good eats.

I try to buy from local producers whenever possible. The quality is superior and it helps protect our environment. This is one reason I love Whole Foods.

I like local because they are normally smaller, dedicated, and seem to be more focused on perfecting their products. You can learn the stories behind them. Local tends to be more natural, and I've noticed local products that seem unique and more creative than what larger companies will produce. AND I like them because they are my "neighbors" in a sense...they are "local" and helping build up our communities.

There's nothing so good as the newly picked veggies and herbs locally grown. We like the idea of supporting local growers--if we don't do it, they won't be able to continue providing us with their treasures.

Local produce heightens one's sense of culture and inter-connectivity. Being from New Orleans, I've seen how local products/stores improve community and self-awareness.
