Visit a farm and pick it yourself or have it delivered to your doorstep, buy it at a farmers' market or the neighborhood roadside stand - whatever suits you. When you purchase local foods you enjoy some of the freshest, best-tasting foods available. Buying directly from the producer also gives you the chance to meet and get to know them, and learn about their production methods. Plus, when you buy locally you support the local economy and keep land in agriculture.
So why are you waiting? Get out there and Taste the Difference!
