"Locally Sourced Food" is used to describe food that is either locally grown or produced locally. There is some dispute as to what 'local' means. Some may consider vegetables grown within 100 miles to fit the definition, while others may feel that it only includes food produced within a 10-mile radius. At Agrilicious, we believe that food grown or raised in your metro area is considered locally sourced food.
