Loca for LOCAL

Farmer's market goods

A peek inside my basket from the farmer's market

What should you consider when renting a Photo Booth?  The quality of the photo strips, the Photo Booth itself,  and customer service are all things that you would likely compare.  I am going to ask you to also consider renting LOCAL.  Some Photo Booth companies offer nationwide delivery of their booths, but is this practice good for our environment or your local community?  By renting from a local company, you are keeping your dollars in your community, supporting a small business, and saving precious carbon emissions from adding to the degradation of our planet.

So, what exactly does this have to do with oranges and fuerte avocados?  It’s Thursday morning, and if you know me, you know that I’ll be at the Farmer’s market in Oceanside picking up the most delicious & fresh produce that San Diego has to offer.  Supporting local farmers and local businesses is at the core of what I believe to be important.  I do believe that you vote with your dollar, and as I go out to vote for my favorite organic farmers to stay in business, I ask you to consider adding “keep it local” to your list of qualifications when choosing vendors for your event.
