Things That Make You Go Hmmmm...



My friends at Ferndale Market in Cannon Falls recently announced their joy that the word Locavore had been added to the 2009 Collegiate Merriam-Webster Dictionary. In the latest edition of this dictionary Locavore is defined as “one who eats foods grown locally whenever possible”. Since Ferndale is a market focused on selling local grown, raised or produced foods, I can understand their excitement. But it made me think – what is one who uses other locally created products like those found on Etsy made by the members of the HandmadeMN team called? Is there a name for those of us who buy local products from local companies or artisans whenever possible? Anybody know the answer? If there isn't one, maybe we should create one.
