Ingredients: Organic, Local, Ethical How do you shop?

CookieGal | Dec 14, 2009 07:54 PM

What is most important to you when buying ingredients?

Freshness? Price?
Do You shop locally?
Do you buy Organic?
Do you buy fair trade?
Do you know your own growers / producers?
Does it matter to you that the fruit you buy comes from across the globe?
Carbon + travel... do you consider these things when buying?

if so what items does it matter for?
what percentage of what you buy is based on these consideration?

I find myself often debating between conventional apples from 200 km away, or organic ones from Australian.... I mean what is better for me? what is better for the environment? What tastes better? I have a pretty strict buying guideline I adhere to ... but what about everyone else, is shopping a huge ethical debate for you too?
