Guess which supermarkets are doing the best job of sourcing locally

What to know which grocery stores are doing the best job of supporting local organic farmers?  Learn more.

Fred Broadwell of Local Organic Y’all has just released a study of the local-organic sourcing and marketing practices of supermarket chains that operate in NC.    I am enjoying taking a look at the website to learn more about the study, as well as other resources.

I still believe,when at all possible, buying directly from local farmers provides the best benefit.  It is always good, however,  to be an informed consumer when shopping at your local supermarket, and hopefully if enough customers request local farmer support then those supermarkets will make more of an effort.
