Many say its fresher, its local, and its cheaper.

More and more people are starting to turn to their local produce stands and farmers for fresh fruits and veggies.

A new survey by the dairy farmers and Borden cheese shows 82 percent of Americans want to purchase locally grown food.

That is the case here at Bryants Produce in Onslow County.

Owner Emmanuel Bryant says he is busier this summer, as higher food prices are hitting the grocery stores.

Many of his customers agree, and feel they should support their local neighbors.

Emmanuel Bryant also says canning fruits and veggies has become popular too, as a way to stretch your dollar and enjoy your goods for months to come .
