When I lived in Zurich, Switzerland, the city had a growth boundary with community gardens, forest and farms just outside the city. You could walk from your home to a working farm full of livestock and on to walking paths in the forest. They had self-serve, put the money in the slot vegetable stands, even a "milk-o-mat," where for a few franks you could fill a container with fresh milk and take it home!
It created this amazing quality of life, including exercise, stress reduction, job creation, connection to the land, and education about where our food comes from. We should emulate this.
