So I'm working with a group to develop a flier to help city folk develop more sustainable eating habits.

Our plan is to canvas people at several of NYC's larger farmer's markets.
We want to make sure we aren't ostracizing farmers who represent meat, poultry and dairy products.

Roughly I am thinking it will go something like this.

Eat as close as possible to the source as you can. - You're at a farmer's market, what percentage of your overall food do you buy here?
Try and develop direct relationships with your farmers. - Do they offer compost pickup? Do they offer filed work exchange?
Are they part of a CSA or other shared risk marketplace?
Extend your CSA market place. - If I bring in X number of customers to CSA would the farm be willing to discount my shares?

Would love love love other suggestions...
