Farmers Markets May Be Your Safest Bet for Food Shopping During the Coronavirus Pandemic
April 17, 2020
Yvonne Michael, ScD, an associate professor in the Dornsife School of Public Health, was quoted in an April 17 WHYY.org story about benefits to shopping at farmer’s markets instead of supermarkets during the pandemic.
“There are benefits to visiting a farmers market in light of coronavirus in terms of the fact that you’re outside, there’s fresh air moving and the supply chain is shorter,” said Michael.
Also, Patch articles ran on May 18 and May 15 about why farmer’s markets might be a safer bet than supermarkets during a pandemic.
