My friend Kristi Willis, a foodie and farmer’s market afficianado,  has written an intelligent and informed post about eating local, and the myths of some “farmer’s market stores.”  Read it here.

I agree with her wholeheartedly, and also have begun to wonder about some of the restaurants that tout their buying locally sourced goods status.  I understand that no restaurant can source all of its products locally, few folks would eat there, because the variety would be lacking, as it is in my diet.  Some do better than others.  Investigation will ensue.
