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Does anyone know of published or unpublished research like this?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 measure.
