We are faced with so many produce choices at the supermarket even in the winter. Asparagus, pineapples, blueberries and avocados are just some of the out-of-season and/or non-local foods I saw yesterday at my favorite grocery store. Some of that food traveled over 6,000 miles from Chile to get to my store in Portland, OR!
How do we navigate the myriad choices we have? How do we make smart buying choices for ourselves and the environment when tempted by South American grapes in the middle of February?
