Abstract:

Abstract: Many low-income inner city residents lack access to the quality, affordable, nutritious foods they need to maintain good health. This qualitative study examined one strategy used to address the lack of nutritional resources in inner-city communities--urban farmers' markets. To assess the accessibility of the markets to low-income patrons, observations were made at two farmers' markets and interviews were conducted with Women and Infants and Children and Food Stamps recipients as well as market vendors and staff. Findings demonstrated that there were several barriers that hinder low-income people's participation in the markets. Foremost among them is that the market's policies and structure are driven by economic concerns that conflict with its effort to provide lowcost produce to low-income consumers. An important consideration for farmers' markets administrators and program planners is the creation of a business model that balances the needs oflow-income consumers with the market's financial needs.
