Abstract or Summary
  • "Farmers' markets are valuable market channels for small farmers and important venues for the economic, nutritional, and social lives of communities. Efforts to make farmers' markets sustainable should focus on two influences on markets: external (related to public policy) and internal (related to market management). Well-crafted public policy is needed to enhance the prosperity and longevity of farmers' markets. At the same time, improving the management of farmers' markets by identifying and resolving their internal issues is another way to improve market sustainability. This report addresses the latter. This report examines the relationship between the size of individual farmers' markets and the set of management tools used by farmers' markets. The analysis reveals farmers' markets will benefit from using the specific set of management tools and resources appropriate for the size of the market. A market must also recognize that it must plan ahead and put in place the appropriate management tools and resources that will allow it to handle the increasing management complexity that accompanies growth. Overall, understanding the link between management structures and market size will enhance the success of individual farmers' markets and save some from serious problems."--P. 1.
