Upper Valley Local Foods Assessment hot off the press!

Our 2014 local foods market assessment is complete! Download it here and on our website to learn about promising growth areas for our local food system. Valley Food & Farm undertook a local market assessment as a sophisticated analysis of the regional food marketplace.  The assessment provides data that Vital Communities, farms, and other food system businesses and organizations can use to develop the local food marketplace. Farmers can learn where customers shop and what foods they are seeking as well as why they buy what they do buy. Farmers can also learn about the interest independent grocers and retailers have in buying local foods. The report also details how our Upper Valley farmers hope to grow their businesses.
Two downloads are available:
