Athens Farmers Market Assists Student Research Efforts on Local Vegetable Production

Do you ever shop at the Athens Farmers Market? If so, you may have been recently approached by TC Jayalath, a current Horticulture Graduate student, and asked to participate in a consumer survey about locally-grown, organic lettuce. More than 125 shoppers shared information about their buying habits, taste preferences and the visual appeal of lettuce grown at the UGA Horticulture Research Farm this spring. We would like to thank the farmers market, the shoppers and S-SARE (funding agency) for making this effort a fun and great success!
