How can we buy local food from our grocery stores?

    The ease of buying locally-grown produce at your neighborhood grocery store depends largely on where you live. If you live in a small town with only one grocery, or if the only grocery store near you is a large chain store they may not carry much local produce. In rural communities you might have better luck buying directly from farmers near you, if this is an option. If you live in a city there may be a co-op grocery store, which will likely specialize in local and organic produce. Farmers markets and CSAs (community supported agriculture) are also great options. Many CSAs can deliver a box of local, seasonal produce to your home once each week. Another tactic would be to talk with the managers at your local grocer to see if they have a program for purchasing from local farmers, and to express your desire for local foods. If the manager isn’t authorized to make these changes, find out who can all the way up to writing or speaking with the CEO. Vote with your dollars, buy local wherever you can and big stores too will come around.
