How much of your produce do you buy from local growers?
Asked at Downtown Lawrence Farmer's Market on June 18, 2008
“Maybe half right now. We buy a lot of it at the Merc and some here. Of course it’s a lot easier to buy locally this time of year.”
“I’d say maybe 25 percent. I like to buy locally as much as possible, but I am a college student, so I have to make sure that I can afford to feed myself in general.”
“Maybe 10 percent throughout the year, but that increases as different types of produce come into season. I only live about a block away, so it’s really convenient.”
“I’m just visiting, but since I’ve been here it’s probably about 30 percent between the Merc and Farmer’s Market, which is much more than back home.”
