Savings: You won’t always save money when buying local food, but the food purchased from food circles is often less expensive than in stores.
Remember this: Not every city has a market hall, and marketplaces are only active for a short time during the year. Local food may not be easily available at grocery stores. Remember that services only remain available if people use them.
Reducing your carbon footprint: Buying local food five times a week reduces your carbon footprint by 6% per year. Emissions are lower because of shorter transport journeys and lower fuel consumption.
