White Paper on Strengthening Farmers Markets

Earlier this year, we joined forces with UN Habitat, FAO, HealthBridge Foundation, and the World Union of Wholesale Markets for a digital consultation to examine the ecosystem of municipal markets systems and how they contribute to territorial food governance. We were so excited about the interest, feedback and possibility for collaboration. This has resulted in the publication of the white paper prepared with the following partners:


  • UN-Habitat (convenor)
  • World Union of Wholesale Markets (WUWM)

  • United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG)
