More local food shots today. It’s almost August and we’re at just about the peak of gardening and local produce season. The tomatoes this time of year are about the best food on earth (if you ask me!).
This week, make an effort to buy some local food. Look for a sign at your local store, or find a farmer’s market nearby.
If you’re at the store, ask someone in the produce department if they have locally grown produce. They may have it, but not have it marked.
Let them know you’re interested in it and they’ll remember — and it may make it easier for local farmers the next time they try to sell their goods to that store.
If you don’t know where to buy locally grown food, try searching localharvest.org – they have databases of local growers and community supported agriculture (CSA) farms.
Eating local will taste better because the food is fresher. It will also make your soul feel better because of the good your doing for the planet and your community.
