The First Supermarket

Although the supermarket has made it easier for many people to get food on the table, it’s interesting to look at where food used to be when we harvested and packaged it for ourselves.

Where Our Food Used To Be

In this graphic from Natural News Joel Salatin reminds us where our food used to be before it was shipped en masse to large supermarkets.

The thing we’re missing is the connection to our local food, the flavor we used to take for granted, and the community we enjoyed with family and friends. We might not have the time to grow, harvest and preserve our own food, but it sure is good to know there are local farmers, artisans and fishmongers that can do it for us!

The next time you go to your farmer’s market give your farmer or the person who made your breakfast granola and extra thank you for bringing the joy of food back home.
