Top Ten Trends: Living La Vida Locavore



The Food Channel® presents its Top Ten Food Trends for 2009. The list is based on research conducted by The Food Channel in conjunction with the World Thought Bank found at, and the International Food Futurists™.

This is all about eating locally, whether you are at home or patronizing a local restaurant that buys from local farmers. We are in search of healthier food as a lifestyle, not as a temporary diet. Becoming a ‘locavore’ includes knowing the grower/celebrity farmers and having food literally branded to a region.

This naturally includes eating seasonally, since local food equates with fresh, and could lead to an increase in urban gardening. We will tend to patronize our local restaurants to help them stay in business, and not all chain restaurants will survive unless they figure out how to promote their use of the local food chain.
