froggythefrog A lot of the places that deliver organics are CSAs, which are local. A farm or a coop of farms just outside the community grow the produce, then workers and/or volunteers harvest, box, and deliver the produce. This actually burns a lot less fuel than being in Albuquerque, buying grapes from Chile and buying tomatoes from California. However, during the winter season, the produce might come from other places. In that case, the produce is still better than what you get at the grocery store: it's fresher, hasn't been set in a ripening room for weeks, and it's organic.

cookingVeg Going to the grocery store is certainly no guarantee that produce is local -- it's usually just the opposite.



I have produce delivered from an organic farm that's in the country just outside the town where I live.



Here's a list of resources I found using google: http://atlanta.creativeloafing.com/g...d=oid%3A139105.

1) produce travelled in a truck to you usually means it has to be picked before ripe to get to you ripe, which = a lot less nutrients/vitamins

2) non-local produce is usually sprayed with chemicals to last through the environments.

3) going to the supermarket and hand-picking produce is so much better. and for me is so much fun!



Just curious how you think the produce got to the grocery store?



The best option is either going to a farmer's market where the produce is grown locally, and likely picked within the past couple of days, or having deliveries made from a local company. Check out this site for a list of some areas where you can get produce delivered. Or, try a google search for '[place name] produce delivery"
