I was heading to the spice section and to get canning supplies when Ralph beckoned me over to a bin of potatoes.....this is what he showed me!
The bin of "Buy Local" Potatoes in our grocery store.
Richmond VA., is 957 miles from Madison, Wisconsin. Is this what they think is buying local?
It sounds like the Term "Buy Local" is becoming a 'Catch Phrase" for marketing.
If this happens it is going to get overused and miss-used like the terms Organic and All Natural!
What do you consider Buying local? How far do you want your food to come from? Do you discuss your food concerns with your local grocery store manager?
Just "Local" food for thought!
