I love local because it keeps my family employed, my community strong and my children healthier. Better food, less pollution for transporting, and we get to know WHERE IT CAME from..... Love the Local Producer Loan program, we need more retailers like you to keep America strong and employed. Thanks!!!

Local produce is always so much more fresh and yummy than produce that is shipped from far away.

Buying local just feels good and it's an easy way to teach my daughter about giving back to the community.

I like buying locally because you know where you food came from and you're supporting smaller business more and big corporations less.

My two cents, keeping it local helps the local farmer, small business'. Where else can you get huge golden beets, the size of apples, watermelon radishes (so yummie) and I met a farmer who had the tastiest tomato's grown in Homestead Florida from New Jersey Tomato seeds. Enough said. . .

Love the local producers as the nutrients in the food don't have as much time to get lost during the LONG trip that foods grown elsewhere take from overseas or across country. Fresher food is better for you.

Local is fresher, tastier, retains more nutrients, supports my neighbors and community, and requires less energy for shipment.... Thanks WF!

When I changed my eating habits..I literally changed my life. I eat as close to the vine as possible and local growers have the freshest produce available on the market today. It is grown locally so from the time it is picked until it reaches your plate is considerably shorter than purchasing from a larger store where all items are shipped in. I would much rather support a local grower and put my money where my mouth is!!

I love that Whole Foods supports local and small businesses--this helps the community, cuts down on shipping and pollution, and it gives the local small business a chance at doing their thing. Yeah!

I love local because it is fresh (no need to transport far) and helps the community. I also love local honey because it helps my seasonal allergies!

Buying local supports the local economy, is better for the environment, and provides me with food that's fresher, better tasting, and more nutritious!
