Most of us are used to go grocery shopping in big Super Markets such as Target, Walmart, Publix…. Is it because it is more convenient? because we find everything we need there? Or because we are used to them? Most of this Super Markets import their food and sell it throughout the United States and to other countries. It is hard to find something that has grown local in them (because they are big chains). If we want to find local food we would need to go to a Farmers Market or small local stores.
Many people say that the best fruit is found only in local stores and that Walmart or Target doesn’t have the best products. I disagree with this statement. It is true that local stores can have fresh and very delicious fruit, but so can big supermarkets. It is important to go and buy our food where we know that they are following food regulations as well.
Choosing where to buy our food is hard, I agree that we need to support local farmers, but I think it is okay to buy products from big chains of super markets.
