There is something to be said for being able to trace where your food comes from and know it is well taken care of before it gets to your kitchen.  The health benefits of eating food that comes from a farm and not a processor are exponential.  Knowing your farmer and your food is an ode to eating local and staying healthy.

Couldn't agree more...just went to Berkeley's Farmers Market and the food was so incredibly good! I also enjoyed that each vendor was passionate, straight from the farm and was willing to share some delicious recipes! How do you feel about Whole Foods?

Agreed! I live in college town, hippieville Berkeley, so eating local is huge here, and one of the most popular restaurants in town, Chez Panisse, bases their whole restaurant off of this practice.  Do you shop at a lot of farmers markets?  Thanks for sharing!

Just went to Berkeley's Farmers Market yesterday (sorry @devora!) with a chef friend of mine that was visiting and wanted to cook for us....in a few words, I was in heaven. Unlike other Farmer's Markets with just a few stands with everyone carrying the same thing and some craft and food vendors, Berkeley is truly a Farmer's Market. I bought some amazing bread, Quark, tomatoes, and the herbs are to die for! Affordable and fresh food while supporting local farms? WIN! A big plus, each vendor seemed …

I am an NPR Junkie. I love to Travel, Explore and be outside. I am serious, yet witty, un pretentious and kind. A wealthy spirit is more important to me than a healthy portfolio.

About this food

Wiki

Local food (also regional food or food patriotism) or the local food movement is a "collaborative effort to build more locally based, self-reliant food economies - one in which sustainable food production, processing, distribution, and consumption is integrated to enhance the economic, environmental and social health of a particular place" and is considered to be a part of the broader sustainability movement. It is part of the concept of local purchasing and local economies, a preference to buy locally produced goods and services. Those who prefer to eat locally grown/produced food sometimes call themselves locavores or localvores.
