Richard Hentschel talks with Ellen Phillips about shopping for local products for the holidays. Ellen talks about local fruits and vegetables as well as other agricultural products like honey, eggs, poultry cheese and meat products. Extension has a website called Marketmaker that puts consumers in touch with local food producers. Extending the growing season using newer grower techniques can get us fresh vegetables well into cold weather.
