We love local because our area offers such great options for seasonal fruits and veggies, etc. We enjoy seeing our local farm labels in the stores instead of nationally distributed products that tend to grow in more bulk, use more negative control methods such as pesticides. We also love it for the kids to get to see what grows locally and at whole foods we see premium offerings of some of our local produce which teaches us what some of the growth in our garden can look like at optimal growth conditions.

Buying from LOCAL producers helps strengthen your community, invests your money close to home, allows for a less wasteful food system, and you have low-traveled food, which means your food doesn't suffer and overall it's better for the environment

I love buying local because it supports my neighbors, supports small business and small growers, is fresher, is more environmentally friendly, and for dozens of other reasons, some of which are all about having grown up in a small farm myself. I love Whole Foods for their support of local farmers and local business.

I like to buy from my local produce companies because I am supporting my local produce farmers. And also it's more fresh compared to if you buy it in the stores. :-)
