“I am really hoping that, if anything, these projects bring about awareness of concepts such as incentive programs at markets and the fact that markets really can serve as a community space rather than simply a place to get groceries.”

Chloe Green

Chloe Green BSx’19 came to UW–Madison with a desire to study sports nutrition. After a first-year interest group focused on the sociology of ethnic minorities, she decided she wanted to use her knowledge from dietetics and apply it to communi­ties that need it most. She received a Wisconsin Idea Fellowship to support her project called A Farmers Market for All? A Look into the True Accessibility of Farmers Markets. Green works with the UW Kaufman Lab for the Study and Design of Food Systems and Marketplaces to evaluate how accessible farmers markets are for people with lower income and for individuals who do not fit the stereotypical image of the white, middle-class shopper. The project is exploring factors such as location, hours of operation and transportation. Read more: https://go.wisc.edu/67so88
