The next thing you know, you will be purchasing food from China and you know what that means, I buy local anyway, kind of a quality control issue.

Today had lunch at the new Red Ball Jet Cafe in Creston Heights.
The oyster bread that I had with my sandwich was from Van's Bakery, Kingmas Produce features Michigan grown fruit and veggies.
I personally support locally owned business's and really appreciate those that also support local business's.
This helps our local economy, quality is better, and don't have to wonder where this produce is coming from.
We need to get back to having control, rather then being controlled.

I prefer produce from Canada. I'm reluctant to buy local produce because it is not cleaned properly.
