NC Fruit and Vegetable Outlet Inventory

The North Carolina Fruit and Vegetable Outlet Inventory (NC FVOI) identifies farmers’ markets, produce stands and road-side stands with predictable location and hours where fruits and vegetables are sold. (Note: The NC FVOI does not include CSAs or pick-your-own farms.) The information collected through the survey is used to support efforts to increase the number of fruit and vegetable outlets across the state. NC FVOI data has been used for mapping, evaluation and the creation of directories that identify where fresh fruits and vegetables are sold outside of retail stores in North Carolina.
