Access to urban markets for small-scale producers of indigenous cereals: a qualitative study of consumption practices and potential demand among urban consumers in Polokwane



Development Southern Africa 22(1): 125-141



Three focus group sessions and 28 interviews were conducted with urban residents of Polokwane, the capital of Limpopo province in South Africa, to determine (i) how, where, when and by whom sorghum and millet are consumed; (ii) how the subjects of the study perceive these grains; (iii) to what extent the produce of small-scale producers is considered acceptable; and (iv) to gauge the potential demand for products derived from indigenous cereals.
