I know that it is not practical or realistic to eat all local food every day for every meal if you live in a city, far from a farm. But just because it is hard to be perfect doesn’t mean that it is not worth making an effort to eat locally produced foods, and foods in season. Strawberries from huge factory farms in California appear year round at Whole Foods all over New England. Just because they are there doesn’t mean it is right to buy them. As a culture we are accustomed to being able to have whatever we want whenever we want it, but it is a fuel heavy and wasteful way that we have learned to live.
