Why shop local?
Reduce CO2 emissions - minimizes transporting tons of food just for availability, animal-based products will have a higher carbon footprint over plant-based.
Encourages eating in season - Probably more nutrient dense
Know where your food is from - ethically and sustainably farmed
Don't forget your reusable produce bags.
