The local food movement is a popular alternative to food globalization. Farmers market in particular have expanded urban food-availability across a range of competing constituencies. This paper addresses the question of how recent policies, in the form of innovations in electronic exchanges for supplemental food programs, have helped and hindered the availability of food for a broad range of urban groups. Managers, staff, vendors and patron engage through a "web" of electronic interface, even as these undermine previous strategies for building face-to-face people/product networks, and test equitable access.
