  Market gains - The Boston Globe
Markets are steadily increasing in number in Massachusetts, says Jeff Cole, executive director of the Federation of Massachusetts Farmers' Markets.
But in Massachusetts, income from direct marketing is spread over markets, farm stands, sales to restaurants, and community supported agriculture (CSA) shares, where consumers pay a certain sum for a specified amount of vegetables at the beginning of the season.
His view seems to be a metaphor for a successful market, which connects urban dwellers to rural life, teaches consumers to value what the earth provides or how a tomato or a peach should taste, and offers a gathering place for townspeople.

 Market gardening - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Market gardening as a business is based on providing a wide range and steady supply of fresh produce through the local growing season.
The arrival of railways in the 19th century initially stimulated the growth of market gardens in certain areas because of the quick access to the city it afforded, but this also eventually led to commuting residents moving to the area, causing many market garden areas to develop into suburbs.
Although in some cases the distinction may be arguable, market gardening should not be confused with the efforts of amateur gardeners, who sometimes sell from home or at markets, as an extension of their pastime.

The market garden we started last year is 100'x100' and we will be making beds there 2'x25' somewhat a raised bed fashion also.

Students working in the Market Garden also may become involved in the farm's composting efforts, as the kitchen scraps from the Coffee House are back-hauled to the farm to be composted.

 Horse-Powered Market Garden
Patterning a market garden after traditional field crop rotations is a natural way to create a rhythm for working horses over the course of the growing season.
Instead of adapting organic gardening practices to a farm scale, we seized on the diversified farm as a model and tried to adapt traditional farm practices to the market garden.
As we see it, designing the market garden with work horses in mind has led to a hybrid approach combining the long-term biological efficiencies of traditional field crop rotations with the short-term profitability of direct marketed produce.
