While I wouldn't recommend them for everything, New Seasons Mkt. has local beef that is much superior to what you get from the big stores, especially the ground beef. They also have a salmon jerky that I LOVE! They're not cheap though.

  I love when local groceries can put a sign up by their produce saying "LOCAL."  Doesn't that just grab one's attention?  :)

  It is interesting the emphasis on buying from
  local sources for food. When you visit the part
  of the site where you are offered the chance to
  make future changes in your behavior and respond
  in a way that would lesson our impact on the
  planet, buying from local farmers helps a lot.
  That's a goal each of us can achieve, too. 

  Safeway buys almost nothing locally. Hanks, on
  the other hand, often features local produce.

  There are also many local buying options from
  farms that aim their planting at customers who
  sign up for the year. As crops come in, customers
  pickup their part of the crop on a weekly basis
  for a prearranged price.

  As for the difference between living in the USA
  and the third world, we live high on the hog
  here. Our country has no idea how rich we are in
  relation to the rest of the world. Things we
  think of as necessities are not even available in
  other parts of the world. Thus, they have an
  inherent advantage in terms of their impact on
  the planet.
