It's interesting that we even consider asking the question of whether or not it is possible to eat locally. People have been doing it for thousands of years. It's only been within the last 75 years that a significant portion of someone's diet has come a great distance from farm/ranch/orchard to their table.

Of course it's possible, we just have to return to a more locally focused approach and pay attention to where we shop and where the food actually comes. CSA's and local farmers markets can substantially help to move this trend in the right direction.

We vote with our feet and our dollars all the time and for things less important than what we put in our bodies. We can create a local food market where we live by buying, supporting and telling people about those who are producing locally. It's not a difficult thing, it's only a mindset that needs to be changed.
