This week on Straight, No Chaser, Katy Keiffer is joined by Michael Hurwitz, Executive Director of Greenmarket NYC and Stacy Miller, Executive Director of The Farmers Market Coalition. Together they discuss the current state of farmers markets and how the recent growth of these markets has impacted urban life. Find out more about how immigrant populations are being considered at farmers markets and cultural gaps are being bridged through communities. Learn about everything involved in getting food from our farms to our tables. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.
"More and more farmers are realizing that the industrial system is not working for them. 90% of our farmers would not be in production if they didn't have the ability to sell directly to consumers."
