Not at all. These are two different designations for food. Organic means that it follows a set of regulations set forth by the USDA and the food will have a USDA organic seal. Local just means your food is from generally a 100 square mile radius from where you live or shop. They can be both, for the Sacramento area Safeway sells Organic raspberries from Driscoll’s in Watsonville – making that organic and local.
No, organic does not mean local, but local food can be organic. Foods are labeled organic when they meet the standards set be the USDA. Some of these standards include not having pesticides used on them and being buffered from crops that do have chemical additives.
