I'm disappointed in that NJ didn't rank. I have 3 farmer's markets within 10 miles of my home.
The states with lower ranking are not a surprise as they are in the SE -why wasn't New Mexico included?

Don't agree with this, in So.Calif. always have had access to local & organic food and farmers markets long before any of this was "in", we even have local organic "free" home delivery from farm co-ops and their food is not any more expensive than the stores and so much more fresh and stay fresh so much longer than store bought. Home delivery will come in handy with all the surgeries ahead of us and they even deliver eggs, soups, cheeses, breads and more. So I think this article needs to rethink their stats before we are ranked so low !!!

I think I was more surprised by the worst states than the best, because so many of them have a strong agricultural background. Maybe this particular survey is excluding the fact that CSAs and Farmer's Markets wouldn't be the only way to eat local. The MOST LOCAL way to eat is growing your own, which many of those states certainly do.
