The Importance of Buying Local

More Jobs Created

When you buy local, it stays local. More jobs will be created in your town, the community will prosper, and people will be more connected than ever to their own town. 

Supports Your Neighbors

Whether you are buying a product from the small independent grocer down the street or a larger grocer in your home town, you are not only supporting  the local economy, but also supporting your neighbors. The farmer down the road, the local manufacturer, or the woman that sells her homemade jams, appreciate their customers so much more. Why? Not only do they get to meet you, a person who uses their products face to face, but your support helps them and their businesses survive. You help feed their families, pay their bills, and put a roof over his or her family’s head. It is a huge deal to buy  locally for this reason alone.  

Final Thoughts

No matter if it is your local small independent grocery or a larger store, we suggest you give your local Alabama products a try. If you do, you will not only experience some of the best products on the planet, but you will have the satisfaction knowing you are helping your neighbors and the planet.  

Buy Alabama's Best Campaign

The Alabama Grocers Association, the Alabama Department of Agriculture & Industries and the Alabama Food Manufacturers and Producers Association together run a campaign called Buy Alabama's Best. Their campaign is designed to bring awareness to products that are made, manufactured,  produced and/or headquartered in Alabama. The campaign also raises money for charities. To date they have raised over $750,000 for Children's of Alabama and this year are partnering with Food Banks across Alabama.
