Grow/Buy Locally Grown!4th of July FOOD INDEPENDENCE DAY (Imported food from : China and Mexico)

As a producer.Imagine your produce is : Locally Grown  and Harvested.. /Synthetic fertilizer/Pesticide/DDT/ARSENIC/You name it toxins FREE! Now try to find out :Where to sell it? Farmers markets in the summer , most are gone for summer break and closed down in S.Florida .. If found , they are missing REAL local farmers .If not, they are required to pay high fees ,to sell their local produce..(In general Farmers markets/green markets are  overloaded with imported fruits and veggies from either  south or north of our borders, mainly Canada, Mexico and China).

Here is my case : I have mango trees , I  tried to sell mangos locally but found no available  help to local farmers marketing their produce at local government or health food stores level. .I called  and talked to managers of local stores and they either turned me away or wanted to buy real cheap.

What to do ?Where to market locally grown produce by small farmers in the absence of local markets in S.Florida without going through middle man or similar third party like co-ops etc????

"They"  say we will help local farmers sell produce ,but in fact it is impossible to make it happen , especially for small local farmers..

 Now as a consumer. 

Imagine that you are not dependent on Imported Foreign Food any more?

 Where to get your "REALLY " locally  grown and harvested Organic produce/food? Green market or farmers Market? If you know of a REAL one please let me know.

I haven't met a real local farmer ,  nor a real Farmers Market around here so far..Plenty of Merchants selling imported fruits and veggies from out of state or from overseas..

 

The local Main Stream  media  covers, Big Agri - Business and publish articles and interviews , as  pay offs for Ads. It is not a surprise that  most of the organic food is out of state or country like the produce or products :Made in China,Mexico etc...Take Garlic for example..It is imported all the way from China..and guess what it is treated with?/God knows what..like most of the herbs and other packaged food from China treated with chemical  preservatives to survive the 2000 miles long distance travel..

 

In reality , imported food is ripe with  unchecked GMO/Pesticides and is chemically treated by GOD knows what ?(Consider this for Example :Long time ago US - FDA  banned DDT /Arsenic/Asbestos/lead..etc.. from being sprayed or used on our food -paint-gasoline etc.. only when produced /made in in USA.. standards and regulations exist! .. Is it Likely or Unlikely when produce or food is food imported ???Imported food is it  according to our own regulations and American  standards ????.

We feel safe consuming locally grown produce and food , because we have our own regulating system. Imported food is only regulated according to foreign countries of origin own regulation standards ,that do not necessarily copy American regulatory standards.They are  saturated with unkown/unreported chemical  Pesticides/fertilizers  !!!

 

 Take this Natural News and FDA  studies and press releases and learn more about what is  is in our imported food for example , and make your own judgements.Knowledge is power.
