How buying locally benefits you
If you’re looking to make a big change in your kitchen in a small way, consider if your food could have been grown in your neighbour’s yard. Buying local is one of the best ways to shake up your weekly meals, as it leaves a positive impact on your health, the health of your community and the health of your planet. It doesn’t have to be a complicated ordeal; you can easily access your local farmers at the markets or through online suppliers like us. Wherever you choose to purchase, the outcome is often the same. Here are the seven things we especially love about the idea that stress the importance of buying local.
When thinking about the cost of your food (or anything for that matter), a good approach is to consider where each dollar goes. By supporting local food producers, you’re often cutting out the corporate middleman, which drives down the price you pay. Secondary to that, if you’re considering your food miles it costs less to transport food down the road than it does halfway around the world. Looking even closer at cost, fresh produce from a retail store or supermarket has on average 5 days of transit and 3 days on the shelf. When one considers that in 7 days stored at 4 degrees celsius your food can lose up to 77% of its vitamin C, along with the loss A, E and very important B vitamins. Buying local and fresh is improving your nutrients per shopping basket 3 fold.
