If we focus our food choices on any one factor in isolation we miss the point. Organic, local, vegan, low-in-trans-fats, etc. The only way we're going to end up with better food is to consider all aspects, not just crusade about one of them.

The whole local vs. organic debate is a bit of a joke as far as any serious food activist I know sees things. The organics movement in the Hamilton area is driven almost entirely by local farmers and gardeners. And while many do import food, it's often through personal connections to similar operations elsewhere. No supermarket I know of can claim this.

The kind of personal connections forged at markets is a very important part of this process.
