The Common Market Feasibility Study

This study tests the premise that a values-driven wholesale distributor of food grown in the Philadelphia region can catalyze the necessary infrastructure to both supply the wholesale needs of the Philadelphia market and incentivize regional farmers to grow and sell more product regionally. The study also seeks to develop a model that allows for start-up subsidy to capitalize and grow the distribution enterprise yet can operate independent of subsidy once an appropriate scale is reached. If feasible, the project's partners seek to leverage the operation to further enhance the food security of the Philadelphia region and the viability of local farms through ancillary nonprofit and entrepreneurial activities.
