I wish my groceries got frequent flier miles.

So I was at Fairway today, and I decided that I was going to log how many miles my food had traveled to get to my kitchen.  I was just curious.

Below is a quick tally of what I bought and where it came from.  I made some assumptions in the case of the eggplant and the fennel, but still, my food for the next couple of days came from almost 17,000 miles to get to me.  That is pretty crazy.  Not sure what that really says, but I should probably start planting some trees.  And I can’t help the San Marzanos… those are just the best.
