Food Box Little Piggy Local Harvest is a website dedicated to finding food grown close to home, the next step for any true eco-asethete is to climb aboard the local movement. It is becoming not only the environmentally and ethically responsible thing to do, but also popular and stylish. On this site you can find by searching your zip code local Farmers Markets, Family Farms, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) schemes, and Organic Food. I found my local CSA here, and have been loving it ever since. Eating seasonally is not only natural, but slimming and vitamin-diverse (you get them all each season)!!!

Each Tuesday I get a box of goodies to enjoy from the Golden Earthworm Farm located in Jamesport, Long Island (the north fork). I am absolutedly thrilled being part of this CSA. Never such a lover of lettuce, I now can't wait each week. It is fresh and has flavour! The butterhead/boston lettuces are so texured and soft. Last week, the strawberries were the best I've eaten in my life. Not overly sweet or watery, they had full body flavour. I can't wait to see what each week brings.

For the NY City area, Just Food is a good place to look as well.
