Do check out the website: www.localharvest.org/ I know someone already posted this, but there is so much more on this site than finding a place to buy your foods. Check it out. I totally love it. You can find restaurants, stores, markets, personal and professional blogs, etc. But the thing I love the most is you can get some useful information on foods that you might not find other places.

I am so blessed to have lived in the PacNorthwest. We have had farmers markets for more than a few decades. They are all over the cities and in the suburbs most days of the week. I loved shopping there and filling up on fresh produce and homebaked items for the week. Before moving back to the city, we had a local group in our coastal town who would travel to the farmers markets and bring back an assortment of organic goodies and we could place orders and pick up a box when they came back to town. It was awesome! I am now living in Hawaii and it seems that the whole idea of sustainability has just hit here. Farmers markets are an up and coming idea and I look forward to seeing the growth.
We'll be best friends until we're old and senile, then we'll be NEW freinds!

If you have a Harris Teeter grocer in your area, you can find locally grown healthy and fresh food items. Go to their website to see if one is near you. When you search, put in zip code only, and donít choose a radius. Youíll get a broader search:
Here in Licking County Ohio, and well as my town Johnstown, seeing a revival of farmer markets, and I know that this will be starting up soon. Last year I did not take advantage, because at first was mostly people selling their crafts, and want more produce. Other towns around have been doing this a couple of years and did not realize that till last year, and plan to take advantage of these this year not just in my town, but other local towns near by.
"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson
Just wanted to share this web site where you can find local farmers' markets, farms stands, organic meats and produce and CSAs. I have hooked up with four farms in my area and I'm thrilled to have the abundance and variety they offer my table. Such wonderful people, too! It's exciting to see the grass roots movement - literally and figuratively - growing.
Hope you can find some farms and CSAs near where you live. Eat local and your body will thank you for it!
Go to www.localharvest.org to see what's available near you.
I know this sounds like a commercial, but really I have saved soooo much money joining a CSA. It's a super way to eat well and get back to basics, too.
