Reflecting on locally sourced food

It has been an interesting and worthwhile experience to attempt to eat as much as possible locally sourced food. It became easier once we knew where to go for different items, but it is a shame that eating local does not necessarily mean shopping local. We had lots of interesting conversations with local shops, but we are left with two questions – how can we increase the number of outlets for local producers, and is it possible to change some of the supermarket sourcing strategies to allow local produce to be more available? Something for discussion and future action?
