Locally Grown Produce available at Indian Hill Shop ‘n Save. Fresh Broccoli & Broccoli Crowns from Presque Isle, Fresh Carrot Bunches, Swiss Chard & Kale from Lakeside Farms in Newport.

Recently there has been a lot of buzz about eating locally grown foods, but why?  Eating locally is oftentimes less convenient and more expensive than buying mass produced foods, yet the benefits that these foods provide for your body and the environment may make it worthwhile.

Why locally grown food is better for your health:  According to the Center for a New American Dream (CNAD), small farms are less aggressive than large factory farms about using chemicals on their plants. Even the non-organic small farms are less likely to have dangerous pesticides and herbicides.

Why locally grown food tastes better: Farmers that sell directly to local consumers select and harvest crops based on when they are at their peak quality of freshness, nutrition, and taste.  In contrast, many large corporations give priority to packing, shipping and shelf life instead.

Why locally grown food is better for the environment:  Small farms are more likely to grow a wide variety of crops.  Variation protects biodiversity and preserves a larger agricultural gene pool, which is important for ensuring long-term food security.  In addition, buying local foods eliminates the carbon footprint left behind when food is transported great distances.

Why eating locally helps farmers: On average farmers only receive 20 cents of each food dollar spent because of the cost of transportation, processing, packaging, and marketing.  When you buy locally, the farmer receives the direct profit of the money spent.

At Indian Hill Shop ‘n Save we understand this need. We appreciate your local support and whenever available we “Buy Locally”. Stop by and look for the “Locally Grown” signs in our produce case. We have new items arriving weekly.

Part of the display of Dansko’s available at Indian Hill Trading Post

Dansko has been a leader in comfort footwear since they first introduced “Danish” clogs to America over 20 years ago! You can recognize a Dansko clog by its iconic shape, clean construction and the use of the highest quality materials from the cushioned insole to the durable outsole. In January 2008, Dansko introduced state-of-the-art footwear innovations to their classic rocker bottom to enhance the comfort, stability and performance of our clogs. Visually other clogs may try to appear similar, but only genuine Dansko clogs provide:

  • Improved lateral stability & more secure heel strike (reduced risk of ankle rolling)
  • Better shock absorption  (comparable to athletic footwear)
  • Softer and more pronounced heel cavity
  • Improved aesthetics. Visually, other clogs may appear similar but to ensure an even better wearing experience, the new Dansko is wider across the heel and has a more stable heel kicker.

Dansko is continually working to enhance the technical features and the styling of our footwear to provide customers with the best experience possible. Dansko’s quality standards have become more exacting over the years.

Only footwear that has the “Dansko” name on it is made by Dansko.  If it doesn’t say “Dansko,” it’s not. Indian Hill Trading Post carries a large selection of Dansko footwear. Stop by today. Your feet will thank you!

Just part of the selection of Lodge Cast Iron Cookware available at Indian Hill Trading Post

When Joseph Lodge began making cast iron in 1896, he began a legacy that would create the foundation to an enduring standard of quality carried forward by four generations of family management. The resulting privately held metal formula, precision molds and exacting mold wall thickness are the result of years of dedication to improving quality that began with the first skillet from the first sand mold.

Not even the most expensive stainless and aluminum cookware can rival the even heating, heat retention, durability and value of Lodge Cast Iron. Its legendary cooking performance keeps it on the list of kitchen essentials for great chefs and home kitchens alike.

For more than four generations Lodge has been making cast iron cookware. And, much of the cookware made generations ago is still in the kitchens of fourth generation cooks. That’s why we say that when you choose Lodge Cast Iron Cookware, you’ve made a friend that will last more than a lifetime.

Indian Hill Trading Post carries a large selection of Lodge Cast Iron Cookware. Stop by today.
