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.

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.
