The new noun locavore
(also sometimes localvore), refers to a person who prefers to eat
food which is grown or produced locally. By 'locally', a locavore usually means very
close to home or within a particular distance of where they live, generally no
more than a 100-mile radius.
Vermont is pretty much heaven for “localvores”. We have such an abundance of wonderful
locally grown, raised and produced foods you don’t have to look far to find them. Anything from grass fed, antibiotic
free beef, free range chicken, cage free eggs as well as wonderful organic
vegetables are as close as your local farmer’s market or even, in some cases
the local grocery store. The larger
chain groceries often have a special section in their produce dept for local
produce. Then there are stores like City
Market and Healthy Living who carry a wide variety of local meats and produce
as well as breads and other baked goods. It’s not hard to imagine why Vermont
is generally at the top of the list of healthiest states. It is definitely a plus in the "quality of life" column when you are deciding where to settle down.
