Krysta Harden: Local food movement is growing up

"...According to a recent report from USDA’s Economic Research Service, farmers across the country sold an estimated $6.1 billion in locally marketed foods in 2012. This is serious money.

In other words, the demand side is maturing as businesses pay more attention to what their customers want."
