on fruit and veggie containers...

They tell you where the produce is from.

Is there anywhere you avoid buying produce from? Why?

Uzbekistan. Just don't like how it sounds. jk

My mom is a real stickler for buying American food products, she reads every label.

Interesting point--the labels on fruits coming out of Plant City are now in French, b/c most are sent far, far north. So our strawberries are labeled des fraises.

I will buy more local when I can for many reasons, but if the only pineapple at Target is from Costa Rica (like what I just ate) I still buy it.

I miss Florida produce!!! Corn, strawberries, ... sigh.

Unless I've heard some sort of news report that warns me away from produce from a particular place, I just buy what we want to eat (or is on sale).

I've never really paid that much attention to it. But I really should since so much produce is grown in Michigan I probably should pay more attention.

The only thing Im super picky about are tomatoes. I will only buy them from local produce stands.

I've never actually looked on the package to see where the fruit is from???

I buy a local organic produce box twice a month. Anything extra I need I pick up at the grocery store and don't really pay attention to where it is from.
