Tools for local food buying

I came across a few sites for buying local produce and local animal products. For me the benefits in buying local as much as possible include personal health (try to get organic), suport local economy, and much less harm to the environment due to large farm techniques and the impact transportation pollution has on global warming.

For local and sustainably produced meat, poultry, dairy and eggs

For local and sustainably grown produce

And a site with some great answers/overviews to all sorts of food issues (biodiversity, antibiotics, pesticides, animal processing)
