Thoreau on eating locally

"Live each season as it passes, breath the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each." -Thoreau

This worked really well for us when we lived overseas and had access to a green grocer, a bakery, a butcher shop within walking distance. I remember how much I enjoyed looking forward to the season for blood oranges. It was great to get your fill of something in season and then have it to look forward to again next year. I would love again to live close enough to walk to each shop and pick up fresh whatever everyday....
