Three Ways To Eat Local on Small Business Saturday #Better #LocalFood

Use the small business locator to find shops in your area that will appreciate your patronage . Look for small butcher shops, corner markets, or independently-owned kitchen or wine shops, and pay them a visit. It’s a good time to begin your holiday shopping (or find something lovely for yourself — wink, wink.) Find a local farmers market and get your veg on . It may be cold, but many farmers markets are still alive and kickin’, and they provide farmers — the epitome of small, local business owners—a way to support themselves. Skip the produce section at your supermarket. Hit up a farmers market instead. Eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner at a small, locally-owned restaurant . Skip McDonalds for a local burger joint. Pass up Olive Garden for a non-chain alternative. You’ll get better food and support your neighbors. All good stuff.
