    You are correct that all farmers should be supported. But there are some advantages to shopping locally. Food that is produced far away might not be fresh by the time it gets to you. Some fruits and vegetables are picked green and then are artificially ripened if they have to be shipped very far. Plus, all that shipping is unnecessary expense and pollution if you could get a similar item locally. And if we make lots of connections locally, we strengthen our community. Hopefully, strong local communities in a few places will encourage others to strengthen their local communities, also.
