What do I consider local? Essentially, I use a 100-mile radius as a starting guideline.
Why local? First and foremost, it's fresher and you can taste the difference. Second, I like to know where my food comes from and by sourcing my food locally I can get to know the farmer and how my food was grown or raised. Thirdly, it keeps my money local too and supports people directly where I live.
I try to spread my local food love around, but these are a few of my favorite spots:
Bethel Farmers Market
Bethel Municipal Center Farmer's Market
Citycenter Danbury Farmer's Market
Gossett's Farm Market
Litchfield Hills Farm Fresh Market
New Milford Farmers Market
Holbrook Farm Market and Bakery
