On average, for every $100 you spend at a local business, $68 stays in the local economy verses $43 at a big box store. At Locavorious, every week is Buy Local Week! All of our food is sourced hyper-locally; during the harvest of 2012 we purchased from 25 family-run local farms, some a mere 4 or 5 miles from downtown Ann Arbor. Nearly 100% of what you spend on a Locavorious purchase stays right here in our community.
Here are some holiday gift ideas: Treat the local food lovers on your gift list to a Locavorious locally grown frozen produce subscription; a Locavorious share makes a unique, local gift that lasts all winter long. Give them a Locavorious Holiday Bundle of locally grown frozen fruits and veggies, complete with delicious recipes, sure to please the healthy eaters on your list. Create special edible holiday gifts from all local ingredients, like blueberry jam or strawberry preserves, or a bake that wonderful hostess a homemade pie. Not sure what they really like? A Locavorious gift certificate lets them choose! Stop by and see us at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market Saturday mornings in December or the indoor Ypsilanti Farmers Market at the Corner Brewery on Tuesdays in December, 3 – 7 pm.
