Simple answer? It costs more because a family farm costs more to run than a massive Agribusiness operation. The hope when you pay more to support such small farms is that the quality is better, because in season local stuff has to be better than food for god knows where that's been sitting in the walk in for three weeks. It's on you to figure out where that actually holds up and where you're just as well off with walmart. My suspicion having been around the block a few times is that you're usually better buying less expensive stuff at the farmer's market than a ton of cheap stuff at walmart. And I say this as a price sensitive customer who makes Scotsman and Chinese look spendy. If you have good local stuff pay the price to eat it in season, otherwise it might not be an option a few years from now.

Find a different place to buy your produce then. Farmers markets are overpriced. You can get the same quality food, likely from the same fucking farmers, if you spend 5 minutes learning about your own city.
For example:
Farmers market: bok choy, expensive as ass
Local Asian Market: bok choy, dirt cheap, might as well be free. Asked the manager who the supplier was. Guess what. Same exact farmer.
Grocery stores and farmers markets do not exist in separate bubbles. One is there to cater to normies, the other is there to cater to retarded hipsters who don't know any better.

No they don't. Not anymore.

I grew up in agriculture on a large family farm, surrounded by other, small to large family farms. We sold to farmers markets, distributers, direct-to-stores. So did our neighbors. This is still ongoing, to believe otherwise is frankly retarded.

Your favorite grocery store, whether it's Kroger or a smaller convenience store, get milk and eggs from regular farmers just like everyone else.

Need a source on that. 440 acres wouldn't even qualify for subsidies. The subsidized megacorporations continually buying up struggling small farmers, buying up theier property and controlling it with a foreign seed manufacturer are running the game and it ain't 440 acres that gets listened to when buying the bought and paid for US executive and congress. Far from it. But by all means keep the corporate fascist status quo and punish the individual innovator! Late stage capitalism at it's finest.

>> No.12784113

I'm not him but I grew up on a family farm and my dad was actually pretty politically active and I'm just gonna say that the blanket term "farm subsidies" covers a wide array of programs and many have little to do with acreage a small farm and a mega farm can receive the same subsidy theoretically it just depends which crop we're talking about. Conversely some one time emergency subsidies like Trumps aid subsidy applies to all of us at a rate dependant upon an algorithm based on estimated amount of money lost due to the trade war.

Based on the complexities and nuance of subsidies in the US its not really particularly germane to the overall discussion on farmers markets. Some of the farmers may be receiving some form of subsidy some may not but it doesn't really differentiate large farmers vs small farmers that much. One subsidy we all receive are Food Stamps and farmers markets make it much easier and cheaper for small farmers to collect and refund the EBT since they can collectively register a single machine with the proper authorities. Subsidies are just part of the biz now

Rest of the post is spot on tho.
