Discouraging Study sent in by Joe Trigg

This link takes you to a study Joe sent me. It is a bit discouraging.

Discouraging a little bit but what should be more of a concern for us is the realistic economics behind the average customer's decision on what to eat. We have run into this issue in Louisville and Glasgow, high quality/cost produce will sell(painfully) but low cost high quality will sell faster. If a compromise (controlled greed) can be brokered to provide low cost/high quality sustainabile produce sustainability will work.

I guess that is the mission then...educate the locals about the values of eating locally, but also create vibrant markets that allow producers to do enough volume to keep prices low when compared to the cost of importing food that is "marinated" in diesel fuel.
