I have a student research team looking at a small growers market of about
20 vendors and how the twin goals for the vendors of sense of community and
economic performance are affected by overall network structure as well as
specific network position for vendors.

Does anyone know of published or unpublished research like this?

We may find that this network is sparse and very centralized on a few
nodes.  If we also find lower sense of community, it would be helpful to
compare this market to others, but we only have our single case at hand to

Thank you!
