LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson says a new food program will help farmers connect with the city’s consumers.

Abramson says there is a disconnect between regional farmers who produce foods and vegetables and the consumer market in Louisville.

The program is called Louisville Farm to Table. It will connect farmers from Kentucky with restaurants, schools, workplaces and people in Louisville.

A statement from the mayor’s office says a study conducted in 2008 recommended expansion of neighborhood farmers markets, and that the city help serve as a connector for farmers and consumers.
