Eat Local Week In The Rogue Valley
Turn over some of the produce in the store next time you shop.
You'll probably find labels bearing information like "product of Chile."
So a lot of our travels a long way to get to our tables.
While local farmers produce many of the same products.
That's why THRIVE, The Rogue Initiative For a Vital Economy, hosts "Eat Local Week" later this month (September 12-21).
We're guessing it's no accident that the week comes during harvest season.
