Pears from Portugal
Plums from South Africa
Carrots from Scotland
Tomatoes from Kent, England
No matter what country we travel to, one of our first stops is the grocery store. Not only is it fun to see what the locals eat, but it’s also pretty cool to see how much an item costs.
One of the really neat things they do in the UK is print the country of origin on the package of fruits and vegetables. I find this fascinating. If stores in the US A printed where the food was imported from in a prominent place on a package, I’d bet people would be more encourage people to buy in season, and who knows, maybe even take a trip to their local Farmer’s Market.
