Amy Christian here, managing ed. of the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development. We're a sister program to NAFSN. We publish applied food systems research, and we've published tons on farmers market, esp. on access. Go to https://foodsystemsjournal.org and search for "farmers markets" and add in keywords like SNAP, food security, etc.

Thanks Mickey!! What do you think is the best approach to creating accessible / nutritious food at farmers markets while farmers can still make a profit? Especially small farms, they rely on some of the high prices that farmers markets provide... how do we find ways for both groups to benefit?
