NOFA-VT Pricing Study

NOFA price studyIs locally-grown and organic food really more expensive?

In the summer of 2010, a team of five interns collected price data at farmers' markets, co-ops, and grocery stores across Vermont to find out.

Results for conventional items were mixed, with some items cheaper at the farmers' market and some cheaper at grocery stores.
