When eating local, you know where all your food comes from. Lastly, it is important to eat local because there are less chemicals in the food. For example, let's say you buy foods at Pick n' Save. Then you go to Outpost right across the street. The foods that you buy at Outpost probably traveled less miles than the foods you buy at Pick n' Save.
