Food Justice Series: The Carver Market story
Mick sits down to talk with current Carver Market manager, Mr Jeff Delp about how the market came to be, where its going, and how the market helps improve the health of his coworkers and neighborhood.
Jeff Delp and the team at Carver Market have helped create a warm welcoming environment to the Carver neighborhood in South Atlanta. Along with the help of the economic development group he is a part of, this dream became a reality. While the local area flourished with small neighborhood markets in the 1950s and 60s, eventually big box stores began to have an affect on those mom and pop shops. Big box stores like Target, Walmart, Meijers and Krogers have become todays norm and often times can be found in bustling suburban areas. However, this leaves smaller neighborhoods that are miles from the city are hard for some residents to reach. This leaves communities at risk for malnutrition and poor physical and emotional health. This is something Jeff, his family, his coworkers and the economic development group didn't want for his neighborhood. Carver Market not only is a place of community gathering and empowerment, but a place where the community can walk to get fresh coffee, meats, vegetables, cheeses, as well as other snacky-staples.
Come join us as we talk about the importance of small hometown markets, the topics of race and gender on physical well being, and how putting equity, time, and love into local neighborhoods can benefit the area for years to come.

Introduction to the Host
Hi everyone! Welcome to The Ethnographic Eater. My name is Michela (or Mick for short) and I am your host. since you'll be hearing my voice on every episode, I figured i'd say hello! In the case that there are listeners who are interested in our show, but are deaf or hard of hearing, I'll be doing my best to get episodes written down in the description boxes.
A little bit about me:
Im a recent graduate from Allegheny College and has my B.S. in Psychology. During the course of my degree, I really took a liking to Food justice and food psychology. I wanted to share the information I learned to everyone around me. Hence, the reason for this podcast. From conversations about religion, race, food systems, access, equality, sustainability, cooking, and food health...theres a lot to unpack.
Our seasons will become more structured as we move along this year. Join me and our season one panelists in just two weeks!
