Buy Local Food First
Buying food online isn’t just easy and convenient, sometimes it’s the only way that Southeastern Indiana residents can find some of the real food ingredients we want to incorporate into our diets.
Luckily, a few websites have sprung up from which you can order food that was grown by Local Indiana Farmers or prepared by Indiana Artisans!
They offer Real Fermented Kraut, Pickles, Kimchi and Tonics! Available for delivery to your home.
They offer Indiana raised pasture meats and Husk’s frozen vegetables delivered to your door step for FREE!
Non-Local Real Food Online Retailers
Some of the real food ingredients that compliment locally grown foods aren’t available in Southeastern Indiana. Sometimes, they can’t be grown in our climate. Things like exotic spices, coconut oil, citrus fruits, some nuts, fair trade coffee and cacoa powder for example. The internet is a great way find some of these items.
And Sadly, some things that Southeastern Indiana Farmers could produce locally, like grass fed butter and cheese, aren’t available in our area in the quantities desired by Hoosiers, yet. But online shopping can help you fill the gap until local production rises to meet demands.
Amazon is a wonderful resource for exotic ingredients you might want to purchase to accompany your local foods. And that’s not all, I think they sell just about everything. We love the two day shipping and free video streaming they offer us as amazon prime members. While they aren’t selling local food, they do employ lots of Southeastern Indiana Residents at their Hebron KY warehouse location.
iHerb is an online store with a warehouse in Hebron, KY. They have teas, packaged foods, supplements, lots of green cleaning and personal care products (and some green washed ones to so be careful).
