California Farmers Markets Webinar
Improving access to farmers markets
Using a framework grounded in policy, systems and environmental change (PSE) strategies, presenters discussed 4 steps for improving access to farmers markets for low-income communities.
- Step 1: Engage with community partners to identify opportunities and champions.
- Step 2: Assess information about your local community so that your farmers market strategies fit local needs, and how to identify markets that are located in locations eligible for SNAP interventions.
- Step 3: Develop and implement strategies to enhance access, featuring a profile of the Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association, and resources available from the Network for a Healthy California.
- Step 4: Ensure local policies, like general plans and zoning, maximize benefits.
Speakers include representatives form the Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association, Network for a Healthy California, and ChangeLab Solutions.
