Sacramento Magazine just published a great piece on local food artisans. This is perfect for the holiday season as sweaters, socks and random crap is fine for gifts, but everybody loves deliciousness. Buying locally keeps money in the Sacramento area economy and supports the businesses and people that I personally want around my town.
On a theoretical level, these are all sound arguments, but they are strongly supported by the outstanding quality of these products. Have you tried Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates? Or the bottled offerings from Two Rivers Cider or Odonata Beer Company? Or Pasta Dave’s creations? All incredible. All very giftable.
During your shopping season, remember the people that make Sacramento great and support them.
