Savor Local

Are you interested in eating the most delicious and healthy foods in the Finger Lakes?  Eating locally and seasonally allows you to consume the tastiest and freshest fruits and vegetables available at farmer’s markets, roadside stands, grocery stores, and restaurants.  

 Top five reasons to savor local:

  1. When you buy from local producers, you are keeping your dollars in our region’s economy and supporting the livelihoods of your neighbors. Know Your Neighbors
  2. Buying local products is an investment in the future sustainability of our local farms.  Vibrant, active farms help ensure a green, productive natural landscape for all to enjoy.
  3. Fruits and vegetables that have been transported over 1,200 miles may take three days to reach the east coast. During this time there is a loss of freshness, quality, and healthful nutrients.
  4. Locally-produced foods and beverages require less transportation fuel, meaning less greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller carbon footprint.
  5. Local just tastes better!  Find out for yourself.
