real food

with rising food prices across the US, i was pleased to find a resource to find quality, locally grown products!

enter your city and state at localharvest.org to find farmer's markets, groceries and restaurants that distribute food provided by local farmers. this is one case where i feel that the technology of mass production for cheap is not the advantage!
People worldwide are rediscovering the benefits of buying local food. It is fresher than anything in the supermarket and that means it is tastier and more nutritious. It is also good for your local economy--buying directly from family farmers helps them stay in business.

also, learn what are the world's healthiest foods along with some yummy recipes.

UPDATE: found another cool website listing farms where you can go to pick your own fruits and vegetables!! it also gives techniques for canning and preserving what you pick. awesome!
