I just returned from a trip to the local grocery store. I just had to pick up a few things and I made an observation while selecting my cherry tomatoes. Normally, I look at the organic veggies first to compare the price. If they are close I choose the organic. However, when I looked at the organic tomatoes I noticed they came from Mexico. When I got to the non-organic tomatoes…guess what? They were local!!! To me I would prefer to buy locally and luckily living in Florida the grocery stores stock the local fruits and veggies when they are in season. Not only could I have gotten fresh Florida strawberries but also the tomatoes! The grocery stores are getting smart; they advertise heavily on the local fruits and veggies now. So…EcoChic lesson of the day…read the labels, you never know what you might learn.
