I had a fascinating discussion with some of my friends on Facebook about how we eat. I am working  hard to change some lazy eating habits. On Wednesday, I will be discussing some of the food controversy that I have been facing recently. (Warning – RANT ALERT!) But so many of my friends wanted this list of Bay Area places to start buying local grown and breed foods.

I know that many of you don’t live in the Bay Area, but I thought this would get the ball rolling to the conversation. If you live in  a different part of the US (or even Canada) and have a favorite local source, please share it here. (I’ve found out a lot more people read this blog than I originally thought, so even if you’re in Austin TX and think no one will be interested in your favorite cheese source, I bet someone will.)
