LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Idea Festival is looking at how to accommodate the increased demand by businesses and individuals to buy local food.
A feasibility study has been examining how to balance the rural food supply with demand for fresh food in urban areas.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer moderated today's panel, with Kentucky's agriculture commissioner also taking part.
"There's a huge demand for people to support their local economy, to be able to buy fresh, locally grown, healthy foods, and our farmers can do that in Kentucky," said Jamie Comer, Ky. Agriculture Commissioner. "It's just a matter of connecting the farmers with the markets and that's what the mayor's doing."
The panel is also looking at how much of a economic boost purchasing local food will generate.
