Buying Local Food Helps Everyone


"Opinion: Buying Local Food Helps You, Farmers, Economy and the Planet"

Thanks to the Cincinnati Enquirer for publishing our op-ed from Food Policy Council director Michaela Oldfield on the many ways expanding access to local foods for everyone in the region and how buying local helps you, farmers, economy and the planet!

The Enquirer’s recent profile of area farmers markets is a helpful guide to where and when people can buy locally grown produce and other fare. We’d like to add a little bit about why farmers markets are an important component of the local food scene and some important context about their role in feeding our region.
