The results are in! There is a lot of food for thought in the survey results.
- Our survey takers buy local food at Farmer’s Markets and Restaurants, but they want to buy local food at Retail Locations like major grocery stores.
- Convenience and Availability were cited as the top impediments to purchasing more local food.
- And good news for food producers and entrepreneurs: survey takers want to purchase more local food.
The challenge now is for local food businesses and local food advocates to find more effective ways to meet the needs of consumers.
