Local food is fresher and taste so much better. It also cuts down on transportation and pollution. I always try to help the local businesses because I hope to be a local supplier one day.

They bring a variety of high quality products into Whole Foods for us to enjoy. it’s our hard-working local producers and their unique offerings that give each of our stores its one-of-a-kind flavor and pizzazz.

I enjoy purchasing local products not only for supporting the community but having better control what I am eating. Our community is more into eating healthy and eating less GMO products.

Local markets gives us that sense of security. Whether we consume or have other uses in the house it is worth the money we spend locally.

Wish Whole Foods would open a store closer to me so it was more local (1 hour one way)!

Having the benefit of living in the Sunshine State, our local producers keep us stocked with fresh fruit (like strawberries!) and veggies all year round. Can't beat that!

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!

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.
