Yes, but WTF is up with Local Burger? Are they still overpriced, claiming locally grown, and under portioned? I tell stories about that place in CA and people just chuckle and say "those silly kansans."

No, have no interest in local or not. I just go to Walmart for everything. Simple.

I'd like to think my food got to see a little more of the world, before it ends up on my plate.

I'd rather not buy it if I can grow it in my back yard.

Once someone starts growing Doritos locally, I'm all over it.

Isn't shopping locally enough?

When I'm not out chasing the great white whale, I do love locally grown tomatos (or tomatoes for the gentleman from Indiana.)
