Currently we are looking for people who primarily shop for food at grocery stores to participate in a series of focus groups. Sign up securely through the link to the right —>
The goal of the focus groups is to better understand the challenges and outlooks of grocery store shoppers and why shoppers might choose traditional shopping outlets over buying direct from farmers at farmers’ markets or through CSAs. These focus groups are a part of a larger USDA-grant-funded project that in part aims to better understand the motivations, challenges and preferences of consumer food purchases.
