I love my local producers because they produce a quality I can trust. I love getting veggies and fresh chicken from my local farmer’s market. It’s always top-notch quality at reasonable prices.And the veggies are just beautiful. No, every apple doesn’t look just like the one next to it, but that’s how you know it’s real food and good food. Thank you!!!!

Local producers deliver high-quality goods and make it less expensive to my pocketbook and the environmental impact. I truly appreciate the value they deliver along with the quality. It's always nice to know that so many fabulous companies are local! = )

Supporting local producers is smart both financially and health-wise. It makes sense economically because you're supporting local businesses and ultimately supporting where you live and play. And often it means you're getting fresher food that's more nutrient dense. It makes sense from all angles!

Offering those in the community who not only give back, but provide us produce and products that we KNOW where they are coming from, gives us a chance to repay them! There are so many wonderful local artisans and farmers in out Indianapolis area and the greatest way to get to know these folks is to purchase their products!

I love my local producers because when I support them, it's like I'm supporting my own community. I know what's in my food and I'm doing good things for the planet, as are they.

When I was younger, my family had at least one garden in the backyard, and another in Fayette County. I often plant some tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc. in my flower beds. I enjoy the fresh produce, and appreciate the work that goes into it. It's important to support the local producers and the community. Thanks for supporting them, and affording me the opportunity to do so!

As a Master Gardener and a member of the Slow Food -- I am so thankful to have these choices available to me and others. I grow as much food as I can, but there are idems I cannot grow here in the desert, and a trip to Whole Foods gives me just what I needed.

I love them because I like knowing that the smallest amount of fuel possible was used to get their produce etc. to me.

Choosing local helps support local growers and at the same time gives my family more nutritous and fresher food - plus gives me, the mom more confidence in knowing where our food comes from.

Buying local often gives you the opportunity to get to know the person or people involved in producing what you are purchasing. Having a connection to the grower/brewer/vintner/craftsman of what you are purchasing gives you a greater appreciation for the product and what it took to get it into your hands.
