Buy Local

Buying products from local farms and artisans is a great idea for many reasons!

  • Choosing to buy locally helps to support small business especially now!
  • It also is much better for the environment. Because the food has to travel a lot less to get to you (long delivery routes or flights are eliminated) it reduces carbon dioxide emissions. 
  • Local food is also particularly beneficial for your health. Because seasonal food is only harvested when it is ripe, it has the maximum content of vitamins and other vital substances.
  • Finally, if you choose to buy from organic or non-GMO vendors, you also avoid products made with harmful chemicals or pesticides.
