Spend a bit of extra time sourcing out a few local things and you can easily eat healthier and maybe even save money too.
Get an easy routine down and you’ll find you can save money and time. Plus, you’ll be supporting families in your community and eating closer to where you live.
Here are 3 great ways to shop local:
Go to the local Farmer’s Market – almost every town and city have one.
Usually held once a week in smaller towns, these markets are a great way to eat healthy food.
Buy in bulk when you can to save money. If you want to can tomatoes, buy them by the box.
There are always several organic booths you can choose from.
Go to the Farmer – If you know a farmer, go right to the source. Give them a call and see if they sell beef, chickens or vegetables right from the farm.
Chances are you will get healthier food for a better price than organic in the grocery store, especially if you are able to pick it up there at the farm.
Join a CSA – Not every town has one but they should.
For a weekly fee you get a box of fresh veggies and sometimes fruit; some CSA’s deliver, some you have to pick up.
Either way, it’s a great way to eat healthy when you can’t plant a garden of your own.
So, support your local farmers – you know the saying. “If you eat 3 times a day, thank a farmer”
