Food that goes straight from the land to the consumer—this is exactly what locally sourced food is all about. Eating more locally grown products within the season they are harvested means we are less dependent on food from abroad. This saves on transport resources and fuel, which is better for the environment, and also means the food we eat is more flavourful! With this method, farmers receive fairer prices for their produce, and consumers eats honest and delicious food. These products are often sold at local markets or through farm shops. They are definitely worth checking out so you can buy your fruit and vegetables as close as possible to the place where they were grown.
