We applied to a market that seemed expensive ($650/yr + 3%), but had good infrastructure and attendance and rules that favored true farmers, the downside was the 2 hr drive.

I was also struggling with the idea of price and competition and financial sustainability for farmers. I can't help but think that limiting competition which keeps prices too high ends up making food unaffordable for the masses (at least unaffordable after they pay their medical and electronics bills) and shrinks rather than grows access to good food. hmm..
