Why Buy Local?
Becoming a Locavore (or rather, a "Mostly-Locavore" when you live in Central Oregon) may sound like a daunting task, but it is a noble and rewarding one. There are myriad of benefits to eating and buying local goods:
Supporting farmers who grow for taste, diversity, and health vs transportation durability and uniformity
Creating local jobs vs supporting large corporate systems
Enhanced nutrition vs mineral/vitamin deficiencies
Robust, ever-changing flavors vs blandness and consistency
Sustainable farming practices and soil-rehabilitation vs pollution and soil degredation
Why is Locavore Important?
When you support Locavore through shopping at the indoor farmers market and attending events you are helping us:
Support local farmers
Offer local food year round
Create a healthier community
Educate children (and adults!)
