I support local producers. They make unique products that are generally healthier and tastier than the "big brands." I know that by supporting local producers I am making a diference in lives of the people around me.

I love my local producers because they remind me of why I live where I do; a bunch of amazing foodies live here that provide the best quality veggies, peanut butter, raw foods, and snacks to name a few.

I love to buy local. I am guaranteed fresh products, I support my local communities, and I am helping the environment by not purchasing products that use a huge amount of gas to be transported to my area. I purchase local as often as possible. I can't wait for the summer corn!

The last thing we need in today's world or tomorrow's world is for more mass-produced goods and more mass-consuming people - by purchasing from local producers, we can create circulating local benefits and increase authenticity and genuine care in what we consume to fuel ourselves, families, and friends. I support putting my well-being into the hands of those who care, not into the hands of some corporation mindlessly pumping out packaged products.

Buying from local growers means the product is fresher. It also means we are supporing our own community.

I am fortunate to have sooo many local producers in the Bay Area! So creative, yummy and delicious! Also, it saves energy when they are local and helps the economy. :)

I will always support our local farmers and will never buy anything from overseas. If it didn't grow here, I don't want it.

BUY LOCAL, BUY LOCAL, BUY LOCAL Easy way to reduce the carbon footprint, easy way to boost the economy in YOUR state, easy way to boost your own health. Battling cancer has opened my eyes to the massive toxic food industry. Support your local farmer, he's your real hero.

I like to get to know the folks who make and grow my food. To see and meet them is the best experience for my kids and my self. To follow their ups and downs and support my local community.
