I love for my family to eat everything fresh and natural. Our family loves locally grown products. We feel better eating natural.

Local produce gets to my table faster which means fresh. Also tends not to be harvested until actually ripe which mean real flavor.

Everything at whole foods is beautifully displayed. The colors of the produce are vibrant. Inspiration in menu planning is much easier because you can depend on great quality. We've run a family business for forty years and know the heart you put into it. In addition your customers become your friends. Great taste, friendly people - it's as good as it gets!

I love local produce because you know where it comes from and it taste better. I have three children and it also is a great way for them to learn about supporting our local farmers. We have taken our children to farms to show our children what it takes to grow the yummy fruit and veggies that we buy for them.

I support local, fresher produce vs. food that's been trucked, flown, shipped, and handled a jillion times before I get the chance to buy it.

I always buy from Michigan Made first to support Michigan's economy first. Nothing like a sweet crisp Michigan grown apple, yum! Michiganders produce everything better!

Buy LOCAL, this shouldn't even be a discussion, it should be a given. This is the way it used to be and should continue to be. Locally farm grown products help everyone and everything. Remember from garden to plate,helps the economy and the food tastes better,what more could we ask for. Thank you local farmers.

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

Supporting local suppliers is a great idea - it not only supports the local suppliers, but reduces transportation costs and we get the freshest products and new things to try.

Local makes sense on so many levels. Buying foods close to home keeps transportation costs down, and gives us fresher food. It helps to keep people who know what "real food" is in business and it keeps business in our area. I always try to support farmers/businesses who are working to make less of an imprint on our environment as well.
