Homegrown

This letter in today’s Post-Standard about the CNY Regional Market caught my eye. The writer is upset about the non-locally-grown produce at the Market and suggests that non-local items should be labeled as such.

Coincidentally, the NYT today ran a story about locally-grown produce in a corner of Michigan renowned for its fruit farms, and how “farm fresh” produce “gets around.” Some buyers don’t realize how or why the food they purchase at farm stands and farmers’ markets, isn’t really local.

Lastly, Simon at Living in Dryden engages some of his readers who have questioned his recent resolve to eat locally.

Updated: Jennifer at Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse has written about ways that people resolved to eat locally can band together (“befriend an eat local buddy”).
