The Role of Ethnic Markets in Addressing Food Access


If supermarkets aren't available in food deserts, can ethnic markets be the answer?



We urgently need your help.  DAME reports the stories that need to be told, from perspectives that aren’t heard enough. In times of crisis it is even more critical that these voices are not overlooked, but COVID-19 has impacted our ability to keep publishing. Please support our mission by joining today to help us keep reporting.

In our continuing series on food access, journalist Amy Roost joins The Fifty One podcast for a tour of San Diego’s ethnic markets (or bodegas if you’re reading in New York) and a look at the role these markets play in addressing food insecurity, and why they’re often left out of both the conversation and the policy discussions around food access. You can also check out the second installment of Amy’s three-part explainer series here.
