Farmers markets and community gardens are a great way to provide locally grown fresh produce to residents. Organizers will want to ensure accessibility so that all residents can either purchase or grow fresh fruits and vegetables. In their traditional settings, farmers markets and community gardens often have many barriers that limit or even restrict participation all together. With the help of your local public health agency and inclusive health coalition, you can remove barriers and provide equitable access for all residents. You can get started by completing an On Site CHII Assessment. This assessment will help to not only identify what you are doing well, but it will also identify barriers that may make access difficult for people with disabilities.
