Trend Terminology - August 16, 2008
Locavore - describes the practice of eating food harvested from within a 100-mile radius, on the basis that local products are more nutritious, taste better, and easier on the environment.
The local food movement is a collaborative effort to build more locally based, self-reliant food economies - one in which sustainable food production, processing, distribution and consumption is integrated to enhance the economic, environmental and social health of a particular place and is considered to be a part of the broader sustainability movement. It is part of the concept of local purchasing and local economies, a preference to buy locally produced goods and services. Those who prefer to eat locally grown/produced food sometimes call themselves "localvores" or locavores.
To be a locavore in SF, go to the Ferry building to buy up all the local produce.
