I love our local producers because they are "the best of the best of the Northwest." Not only are local producers sharing the highest quality of food, goods and services they represent us all as one community." Eat local, think globally. :)

Locally grown food taste better and stays fresh longer than foods shipped from across the country. It also gives the community the opportunity to support local businesses.

I support the local producers so they can continue to produce food that tastes good and is healthy. Most of the time, bigger companies are concerned with making a profit, not the quality of their food.

I choose local because I have yet to be disappointed by local produce and bakeries. Local food tastes so fresh and I don't have to go far to learn about the company or farm.

As a former Vermonter, I have great respect for farmers and the fresh food their hard work produces. I bring fresh foods from local Farmer's Markets 3 hours back with me after spending weekends there. I am so happy to see Whole Foods supporting local farmers. Thank you!
