Buy Food Grown Locally

Short Description

Buy fresh food grown locally, it’s good for your health, our environment and our local economy!

Local food is fresher and tastes better than food shipped long distances from other states or countries. The average supermarket vegetable travels 1300+ miles from farm to table. With each local purchase, you ensure that more of your money spent on food goes to the farmer, and in turn the local economy.

 

What it costs:

Buying from a local farmers market or food stand doesn’t cost much more than what you would spend at the supermarket. If every SouthCoast household invested just $10 a week in buying locally produced food, millions of dollars every year would stay here in our own community to help support jobs.
