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!)
