A few years ago Polly and I started a project collecting produce prices from Appleton and Stevens Point area grocery stores. We wanted to see the truth behind perceptions of local and organic food as too expensive, more expensive, or otherwise inaccessible to all but the most privileged. As usual, reality is more complicated. If you are interested in joining us in this continuing study, get in touch! We need help collecting prices. Our long-term goal for this project is to provide consumers and farmers with up-to-date pricing so that local produce gets the demand it deserves.
