11 Food Trends We Liked in 2011

 

Farmer's Markets

Local

Whether its meat and seafood or produce, locally-grown and harvested products continued to grow in popularity in 2011. Farmers markets and community supported agriculture (CSA) groups have seen marked increases in participation in recent years, as Americans try to consume more fresh and organic products. While we expect the trend to continue in 2012, in many ways the discussion may shift from “why to buy local” to “what does local really mean.”
