A few years ago, I became a locavore for financial reasons. We were going through a very tough time so I had to readjust our lifestyle. Among other things, like taking public transportation to work, this also meant abandoning the supermarket for more affordable food options. I started going to the produce market and located a farm nearby which sells dairy, meat and poultry, and a few seasonal vegetables and fruit as well. We don’t miss the supermarket at all, and have gotten use to the fact that we have to reserve our eggs and butter a day to a week in advance.
