The Fifty One

The Role of Ethnic Markets in Addressing Food Access

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

This article was made possible because of the generous support of DAME members.  Will you contribute just $5 a month to support our journalism?

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.
