Rethinking Market Studies (from the National Black Food & Justice Alliance)"he Market Studies Research Project is the continuation of many conversations
within Black-led co-op spaces, most recently from a session at the 2022 Up & Coming
Conference Black-led track. Participants discussed the need for culturally relevant
market studies and principles that can aid Black co-ops in Black neighborhoods
in obtaining funding. The current market study field is heavily reliant on data that
diminishes the impact of Black spending and the demand for localized, community-
operated food options in our communities. During the National Black Food &
Justice Alliance June 2022 monthly co-op peer call, representatives from Black-led
co-ops decided to initiate a project to challenge the existing anti-Black, capitalist
standards around market research to make funding sustainable, Black-led co-ops
more possible. The anticipated outcome of this project is to have a final product of
culturally relevant market study principles, strategies, and recommendations to share
with communities, cooperatives, funders, and stakeholders that will shift the power in
funding Black-led cooperatives."
