A new proposal for a food hub in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada could make it easier for farmers to get their product to market — and for shoppers to get access to local food. A city report, to be reviewed by the executive committee on Monday, says the food hub would be a “multi-purpose facility … that brings together a wide spectrum of food and agriculture-related activities.” The goal is to increase access to sustainable, locally sourced food.
