Why Should You Buy Locally? Three Options and Reasons to Avoid the Big Supermarkets

Sep 23 2013

Farm markets

Did you know that the average American meal travels for about 1,500 miles before it arrives on your plate? There are a lot of reasons this is not ideal. Not only does it increase our carbon foot print, or how much carbon dioxide emissions our purchases contribute to the atmosphere, but it can also lead to lower quality foods. Because fruit, for example, has to travel long distances, it is often picked while still unripe, then gassed to ripen it after transportation. Tired of being a part of this? Here are three solutions for learning to eat locally grown foods.

1. Farmer Markets

Most communities both large and small support a local farmer’s market, and this can be a great way to get produce that is both cheap and locally grown. Not only will you cut down on your footprint, but you also get a c

Aug 26 2013

Organic farmers market

Local, natural, free range, organic, fair trade, all these words get thrown around so often that it can be easy to forget about what they truly mean. Buying and eating local means to seek out food that is grown in your community. For example, if you live in a temperate climate, it might mean buying tomatoes from a local farmer instead of ones from the supermarket. Supermarket produce is usually imported from across the country, or from some other country altogether.

There are many excellent reasons to eat local, but here are the big three.

1. It is easy!

CSA, also known as Community Supported Agriculture farms, and farmer markets make it easy for you to find local fruits, vegetables, meat, and other products. Depending on where you live, you may also find it easy to get local foods year round. Cali

Market place foods

Many individuals spend all week looking forward to the weekend only to realize that, on at least one of the days, they will not be able to do anything fun because they have to run errands and go grocery shopping for their family. However, fresh food markets provide an opportunity to combine the two. Going to the grocery store is a hassle, and pushing through crowded aisles and waiting in line at the cashier is never any fun. In order to avoid those problems, many individuals will want to do their shopping in the fresh air and laid back atmosphere of farmer markets.

Despite constant efforts by management teams to make their supermarket feel more fun, grocery stores still feel like grocery stores. While there are probably more items there than at a fresh food market, for most, shopping for food always feels

Have You Ever Tried a Crystallized Pansy? Here is What You’re Missing

Feb 10 2019

The foodie trend has grown tremendously throughout the United States as more and more people want to try new and different things. They want their food to be exotic, delicious, and beautiful. The explosion of social media has opened the door to everyday people posting photos and reviews of the things they eat. From homemade dishes to expensive restaurants, people feel drawn to sharing what they are eating.

For Americans, this often means trying food and ingredients that have been commonly used in other areas of the world for generations. For example, in many areas of the world plants, flowers, and microgreens have been common ingredients. However, in the United States this is seen as a fairly new phenomenon.

Jan 21 2019

Even more than drinking, cups are available for eating as well. Especially for things like ice cream, gelato, and frozen yogurt cups can be used as a brand for the stores that serve and sell these items. With Americans eating these desserts almost 30 times a year, there is much to expect in the frequency of these cups circling throughout the outdoors.

Many Uses for Custom Cups

Standard paper cups are easy to use, especially when they can be purchased in mass from almost any store. However, the custom cup is important when a restaurant or other food service station has a certain brand that they can share with the public. This often takes place with local and franchise ice cream and other dessert stands, but there are many other locations where custom cups are helpful.

Additional Cups
