Friday Agricultural Factoid

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, the average vegetable travels almost 1,500 miles from farm to grocery store. That's nearly 30 times the distance of foods purchased from local farms. Here's a great idea; visit a farmers' market. Fresher food that's easier on the planet.

You've convinced me. I'll visit a farmer's market as long as it's not the kind that lots of freaks hang out at. Between you and me, I think you know what I'm talking 'bout.
