Thank you for posting this list. Many people think that local, organic and fair made products aren't available in their areas. But usually, we just don't know where to look. Thank you for this wonderful resource. And may I add that if, after checking these resources, one still can't find products .. ask the owners of local stores if they'll stock these items. Many times, they'll try to accommodate us ... and if enough people ask ... it'll be in their best interest to accommodate us. There's power in our purchases.

I strongly support local produce and juices.
I am a consumer advocate and spend most of my time exposing MLM scams. Many are selling juices, lotions and potions.Hyped and overpriced.

Buy good health foods locally and support your community.
