How to find local foods

So you don't belong to a CSA (community supported agriculture), and you're just not sure what to pick in your natural food store's sprawling veggie section? Here's a tip: Go online to find out what foods are growing in your neck of the woods. Log onto the NRDC Food Miles page, enter in your state and the season, and the site will tell you what local foods are available this time of year.
