The Cost of Local Food
Yesterday, I spoke with a local reporter about the challenges of eating local. One challenge I did not mention was cost. I did this because I do not believe cost is a challenge to eating local. At least let me put it this way, I certainly think that I am paying the fair cost for my food when eating local. That does not mean that there are not ways to make local less costly. Jen Maiser at the Eat Local Challenge site has some good ideas on how to spend less money as you go local.
