Looking forward to growing out own food and another season of buying from others who do the same. So much healthier for our bodies and the environment.

I am a partner of a local business also, very busy with no time to research and locate local food suppliers. I count on Whole Foods to do that for me. I know when I go to Whole Foods they have done the research for me and will highlight and provide me with foods and products from my local business "neighbors".

These are my neighbors, the people that I might hold the door for as I leave the same store that I just purchased their product from. I want to know that the links of the chain where my families items are coming from and I don't want them the end link something that is only about money and greed. I commend Whole Foods for the strong support in the local community.

I love eating locally. I can't wait for this years spring/ Summer farmers market to start. I have been going to the local winter market for the past few months. I feel so much healthier when I am eating local veggies and meat!!!

Love to support local farms and local products. We all help each other by supporting these farms and families so that can continue to enjoy the fresh and healthy foods. We love Whole Foods for that same reason.

A typical carrot has to travel 1,838 miles to reach your dinner table. Buying local, seasonal produce is not only tastes better, it's so much better for the environment!

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.

I love my local producers b/c they show spirit and spunk in challenging 'mass market' and mainstream brands. Look forward to trying the brands in the basket. :) dawnzig (at) hotmail (dot) com

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??

I love supporting my neighboring "little guy" stores and farmers. Plus, produce that doesn't have to travel thousands of miles to get to my table is better in so many ways.
