Re: “Local farmers market doubles food stamps — how do they do it and why is it rare?

You are right ThinkitThrough that Farmers Markets have been targeting those folks with money but I don't think this is out of some kind of bias or snobbery. Local food is pricey because you can't produce food sustainably at a cheap price. Small local farmers have to make a living, so they have to sell their food at higher prices.

This Doubling program will make local food accessible to low-income folks WHILE giving the local farmer a new client segment. Great for the farmer, great for all community members and great for the planet. Thank you Nat for writing this article.
