Abstract

This 
paper 
outlines 
a 
vision
 and
 implementation 
plan 
for
 an 
improved 
regional
wholesale
 marketing 
system
 that 
addresses 
the 
major 
barriers 
and 
risks 
that 
limit
 small 
family 
farmers’
 ability 
to 
bring 
good 
food 
to 
market 
and, 
in
turn, 
provide
 consumers 
and
 communities
 with 
access 
to 
good 
food.
The
 vision presented 
in
 this 
paper
 is
 of 
a 
new
 statewide 
organization 
that 
networks 
regional
food 
aggregators 
and 
distributors into 
a 
system 
that 
expands
marketing 
opportunities, 
reduces 
risk, 
and 
increases 
access 
to 
good 
food—a
network 
of 
Regional 
Food 
Hubs.
