How can I make sure that I am buying local food?
We are supposed to buy local food to strenghten our local economy, reduce climate change impacts, put our taxes to a good use, etc. But how can I make sure the products I am buying are really local?
Farmer's markets are good for purchasing local vegetables, fruits, etc. Labels don't always work well because a product can be from a different place but packaged in your area and then, it is labeled that it came from where You are ...
If You buy from small independent store owners, butchers and such, You have more chances of supporting your local producers, in my opinion.
All the best and thank You for thinking about your power as a customer! We all have a vote with each purchase we make - about who we support.
