I live in Connecticut. We will never have “local pineapple,” and I love to enjoy fresh pineapple from time to time. But whenever possible—I buy local. For your local economy, for your local farmers and for your health, choose locally grown produce whenever possible.

  1. For my part, I don't travel a lot. Only counties or to other states. I have always wanted to see the world and experience new cuisines. But the melting pot of cultures have taken me to many places.
