Eating local is no longer a trend. The connection between consumer and producer allows us to make informed consumer decisions and also create a greater sense of community via farm-fresh food. In this episode, host Cat Neville explores various ways you can shop local, starting at your local farmers’ market, as she heads to Springfield to check in with the folks at Farmers’ Market of the Ozarks. We typically associate open-air markets with local products, but in Augusta, Missouri, Todd Geisert, who is a multi-generation hog farmer, features his pork plus tons of products from local producers at his new market and cafe, Farm to You Market. Community Supported Agriculture is another way to get your local fix. In St. Louis, Mac’s Local features a diner where you can get grass-fed beef smash burgers and offers Grocery Bag subscriptions, which Cat will be using as the surprise base for a farm-fresh meal.
