What does it mean to eat local?
Eating and shopping locally is a growing trend nationwide, but choosing local food is more than a passing fad... it supports our economy, helps our environment and ensures we have eat the freshest, most delicious food possible.
Eating local means different things to different people. You need to choose the definition of local that works best for you.
Here are some ways people make local eating work for them:
- Only eating food that is produced in your state or within a certain radius of where you love. At FreshFix we buy produce from farms that are located within 100 miles of Buffalo, NY
- Buying produce locally when it is in season, but get it from other sources when it is not available in your area
- You may choose to get all of your perishable goods (produce, meats, dairy and eggs) from local sources, but rely on other sources for your non-perishable items
