Another great reason to buy locally & in season:

CULTURE. If we continue to bow to the dictates of the two large food retailers who care only about price – we’ll end up bypassing smaller, local growers in favour of larger, more industrial producers and imports.  Larger growers can often produce food more cheaply, but smaller growers can produce a more diverse range of crops and get them to market faster.  Local growers also look after the land around our cities and provide the attractive rural landscapes we so enjoy…” Sydney’s Seasonal Food – a Slow Food Guide
