[Tagging] Tagging of "local" produce

I am watching with interest to see whether a good set of tags for both
these stands and bakery can be created. Bakery has had  commercial_outlet
vs local_outlet vs. produced_on_site proposed or an origin tag proposed (so
far)
One problem I see in tagging farm stands (also a problem for farmer's
markets) is the source of produce often changes during the year. I see
produce stands open with the tourist season, often carrying produce from
out of the area (since it is not mature locally) then changing to all local
produce as it becomes available. Not sure how one would mark this.
