Been to a co-op or farmers market lately? Been to the local privately owned business? Found that lady that has her own hives and jars her own honey? Or the butcher that only gets organic meat from local farmers?
Local is the only way to go. There are SO MANY good reasons, but here are the top ten by Life Begins at 30.

If you live in Albany, check out these wonderful places:
The Honest Weight Co-Op
The Warehouse
Both offer local and organic stuff and I can attest, it’s all delicious.
