Obstacles for farmer's markets in poor NY areas?
According to an article in the New York Times, farm markets face obstacles in New York city's poor areas. A report released by the borough president, Scott Stringer, takes notes of "roadblocks" put in the way of community groups looking to implement farmer's markets in low-income neighborhoods. In order to address some of the issues, the report recommends several changes including creating a central entity to manage the farmer's markets and a uniform application process.
