FoodTank named the brand-new World Farmers Market Coalition as one of 122 organizations transforming food systems around the world. In December 2021, I agreed to serve as provisional president for the NGO, together with Campagna Amica's Carmelo Troccoli, serving as Secretary General. Prior to the pandemic, we were witnessing a new generation of civil society-led markets emerging around the world — from Bangladesh to Denmark. With this new flourishing of markets, it raises important questions about legal structure, governance, and business model. is there one right way to manage a market or does it depend upon the environs (political, cultural and economic)?
These are some of the questions we will address in this first edition of the World Farmers Market Academy: 100 minutes with market experts, advocates and practitioners.
