Low Cost Locavore: Thoughts from the Bandwagon
I started my own week-long version of the Eat Local Challenge to see if – contrary to popular belief – it could be more than just a game for privileged people with too much time on their hands, in which the “prize” is a smug sense of self-satisfaction.

Locavore Living: Preserving Your Greens
Whenever food at the grocery store gets marked down, it strikes me as creepy. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll buy armfuls of 2-for-1 ice cream pints. But turkey sandwiches with a crossed-out expiration date or oranges covered in fruit flies? No thank you. At the farmer’s market, however, the sale box is your friend. Go to it; be not afraid.
A Taste of Locavore Living: Once You Go Fresh, You Never Go Back
You may be wondering, “Are the positive effects of eating local really worth the extra effort required?” It’s a fair question and one that can be answered different ways.
