Tornquist: Shop local for the holidays

Amy Tornquist of Watts Grocery in Durham urges all friends and neighbors to think about buying locally as we approach the holidays.

That doesn’t just mean supporting your local farmers at both the Durham and Carrboro farmers markets. This means buying books at the Regulator Bookshop, buying gifts at Vaguely Reminiscent, buying milkshakes and gift cards at Ox and Rabbit, getting your wine and gift baskets at Parker and Otis, and, of course, dining and buying gift cards at Watts Grocery.

The economy is improving for some, but we still need to use our dollars carefully. For more info about what it means to buy locally, look at the fantastic videos at the Regulator Bookshop website.
