Yes, buying locally is always the more environmentally friendly method. If you are so motivated, you can even grow your own peanuts. Peanuts need loose, well-drained soil in which to grow, and a fairly warm environment.
In West Africa – one of the largest peanut-growing regions in the world – peanuts have a very important role to play in agriculture. They (and other leguminous crops) help “fix” nitrogen in the soil. This works through a symbiotic relationship between peanuts and a particular bacteria. Even here in the United States, in the early part of the 20th century, peanuts were recommended to farmers who had depleted their soils by monocropping cotton.
