Burnaby Farmer\'s MarketHere are some Reasons to Eat Local Food as provided by Life Begins @ 30.

  • Eating local means more for the local economy.
  • Locally grown produce is fresher and tastes better
  • Locally grown fruits and vegetables have longer to ripen.
  • Eating local is better for air quality and pollution than eating organic.
  • Buying local food keeps us in touch with the seasons.
  • Local food translates to more variety.
  • Supporting local providers supports responsible land development.

See if you can do your part in getting to know your locals: produce farmers, bakers, cattle farmers, or even supermarkets that carry local items. You can start off small and check out the local farmer’s markets in your area, where you can find fresh produce and homemade goods that would tickle any taste bud. Some of the markets even provide entertainment and showcase local talents. Check one out this weekend!
