I have found a few more places near me (one of which is only a 5 minute drive!) that carry local and organic products. I am very eager to try the place so close to me, but am not quite ready to go grocery shopping. 16 months ago

How I did it: So I don't have an excuse for not eating my veggies! The farmer's market is amazing! It spans 6 city blocks, and it's open 7 days a week, rain or shine. There's also a few specialty grocers, such as a spice shop, two delis, an amazing cookware store, two seafood markets, and an assortment of butches and restaurant. If you're ever in Philadelphia, PA, don't leave without visiting the 9th street Italian market!
Fresh, cheap, and locally grown food - what more can you ask for? I have to make a habit of going to the market and picking up fresh fruit and veggies. Since this stuff isn't treated with preservatives or genetically altered, it spoils a lot faster than grocery store produce - so I usually buy large batches and freeze. I've also been able to save a lot of money, because I'm cooking more and dining out less Read how I did it… 5 months ago
I did some googling and found a co-op nearby (which is relatively cheap for membership) as well as a “natural” food store that carries locally produced food as well as other products that are made in the area. Hopefully I’ll have a chunk of free time to check these out soon! If all else fails, I can check them out over my Thanksgiving break when my roommates go home. 19 months ago
