People who eat locally generally don’t do it for any reasons related to evil trucking companies specifically. They do it because of the reduced environmental impact of hauling vegetables 80 miles instead of 1,500 miles, or to support their local economies/farmers, or to be able to investigate the growing conditions of their food, or to eat for a sense of place (e.g. Eating corn and chiles along the Texas border is culturally appropriate to the area.)

One can, of course, buy strawberries from California when they are in season there and from Mexico when they are in season there and from Iowa when they’re in season there, but many locovores choose not to eat produce that isn’t in season where they live.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
