Just to clarify….We run a couple of little "boutique" farmers markets, we are priced competitively with organic food in the grocery stores and we sell out at every session. We are in a low income area that can not afford boutique pricing.
We are working with the state to accept Snap benefits, they also have a program called "Double up food bucks" that allows people to double their benefits with fresh organic food.
Our state just gained the title of the highest incidence of food insecurity and child poverty, we are working our bums off with a local food coalition to tackle that.
No offense taken, each market should be looked at on an individual level and not painted with broad brush strokes!
Love what you do Wendy, thanks for doing it!
