Underserved Farmers Feeding The Underserved

For the last four years, Cary Junior has been working to create a market for a small group of black farmers not far from Detroit’s city center.

As general manager of the Southeast Michigan Producers Association, or SEMPA, Junior has been leading an effort to build the capacity of these farmers and get their greens, tomatoes, corn, squash and other vegetables into the hands of fellow Detroiters who lack access to healthy, fresh local food.
