This paper presents questions and challenges as the result of studies by the East Africa Learning Network. The paper describes how and where small-scale farmers are trading, how their markets work and how these markets can help improve mechanisms that support the flexibility of informality while taking into account issues such as food safety, the environment and corruption, that work against the interests of farmers and consumers.
