Look for local sources for your ingredients.
Go to farmers' markets and farm stands, or at least a grocer that buys from local farmers. When you buy from a local producer, you get the freshest food, which tastes best and is most nutritious. And buying locally saves on energy (less used to package and transport the food to you). Last but not least, when you support your local farmers you help them to stay in business, preserving invaluable open spaces in your area. To find the farms nearest you, visit the Local Harvest Website and you can search by zip code.
