Local Food Data Tracking

The Local Foods Data Tracking Program is a partnership with USDA-AMS (Agricultural Marketing Service) Market News Reports to aggregate pricing data on Vermont agricultural products, which include fruit and vegetable crops, meat, poultry and eggs.  VAAFM teams with farmers and farmers markets across the state to publish current pricing data here.  National pricing reports are also available at the USDA-AMS Market News Reports website. 

The goals of this program are to: 

  • Provide public access to anonymous contemporary fruit, vegetable, poultry, egg and meat pricing
  • Provide national and regional comparisons of Vermont farmers’ market pricing data available on a weekly basis
  • Provide local foods data to support more accurate support for setting federal insurance rates and access to loan opportunities for food producers
  • Enable farmers & vendors to price products accurately & competitively
  • Enable farmers’ markets to assess product price competitiveness against conventional grocery stores, food coops, and other food vendors
  • Allow consumers to assess product price competitiveness among farmers’ markets, grocery stores, food coops, & other food vendors
