Vox Populi

If you could only eat locally grown food, what food do you think you would miss?

Exotic food like bananas and grapefruits. I’ve been eating organic food for the last two years, but I’d love to eat locally grown food.

Papaya ” I eat it every day.

Avocados, because I like guacamole.

Coffee, definitely. In Meaford, Ontario, there is a place called the “100-Mile Store” that only sells things grown or raised within 100 miles. I’ve shopped there, but I don’t know that I could fully support myself on it.

Is candy a food? I don’t think they make sugar here. But that’s the first thing that comes to mind ” chocolate and candy.

Fruit, like oranges and that sort of thing.
