VPR looks at the economic impact of food production in Vermont in the special series The Business of Food.

All this week during Morning Edition, we're looking at the expansion of farmer's markets from a summer calendar schedule to a year-round operation, how community planners in southeastern Vermont say it's time to go beyond co-ops and plan for a "post-oil" world, how "farm to plate"initiatives have resulted in good social policy and how downtown planners are using food co-ops as a lure to enliven central business districts.

Listen this week at 7:50 a.m. during Morning Edition.
