I love my local producers because they the Masters that are on the front line of sustaining this community, and they are each of us: Mothers, Fathers, Community Citizens concerned with the stretching of their individual dollar. Within this self-sustaining system, they are also providing us with a way to insure that our children will grow up to become nutritionally healthy adults who can contribute to the new demands of our ever-growing communal economic ecosystem. I love buying local! Thank you for your dedication and your Missions to heal us all! We Love you, Keep up the Good, Wholesome Work!

I needed only one taste of our locally grown "heirloom" tomatoes to be convinced that we are extremely lucky to have such talented food producers available to us as we have. And the Whole Foods market makes their products available to us through their generous programs to support these producers. The support in this community is truly outstanding and that really helps us keep good wholesome locally grown and produced products on our plates year round. An awesome effort that we should all appreciate and applaud for the way it is managed and administered. Keep up the excellent work. I'm impressed every trip i make to the Whole Foods market with the good fortune we are blessed with.

I love the local suppliers as it keeps funds (and jobs) in the area, and the food and produce is so much fresher!

Their products are wonderfully fresh and also creative. They're not afraid to be a little (or a lot) quirky.

Local producers provide awesome quality, freshness, are excellent for the environment and quite often have more nutrition and substance than commercial products.

Yes! I adore local producers, farmers, AND mom-n-pop stores. Keep on pouring into them, Whole Foods and family. It's the only way to do it.

Yum! They taste better and I love that they didn't have to be trucked from who knows where

There is nothing better you can do for your health, and the health of the community than feeding yourself with, producing and supporting fresh, local produce and goods.

I like local produce because it's fresher and helps the local grower. It is more cost effective and a greener option

I love my local producers because they are often available for questions and explanations, and you can usually meet them at the farmer's market, standing behind the very products they made!

I love knowing where my food is coming from and who's responsible for making it- I like how buying local tends to be more interpersonal than buying from a corporation, and it leaves me feeling good knowing I could be helping someone's business out.

I belong to a CSA in the summer and it is wonderful to experience the freshness and variety of the produce. It's great to support a local farm.
