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 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.

There's so many reasons to buy local! It's fresher and tastes better. You're supporting your local economy. You know where the food came from. Cuts back on the pollution caused by shipping food long distances. I'd grow all my own food if I could, but buying local is the next best thing!

Because local produce is fresher and tastier because it does not have to be picked prematurely so it will keep during cross country transport. bizzley at msn dot com

Locally produced goods simply taste better and use less fossil fuels in getting transported to local Whole Foods markets.

Why local? Because it is a win/win for the farmer, the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker:) The consumer gets a high quality product, supports the community and maybe even saves a business.
