Local markets and organic stores
Organic food is food grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides and insecticides. In addition, organic farming strives to cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. Organic foods have a low impact on the land they are produced on, have better animal welfare practices and, being free of chemical inputs, are better for ecological and human health.
