A roadside market on the way into Kampala, Uganda’s capital, sells mangoes, pineapples, bananas, tomatoes, peanuts, and other locally grown produce. “These days, there’s a lot of food available near large urban centers,” says Zachary. But not everyone has access to transportation, he adds, “so if somebody is driving by, they might pick up a bunch a stuff, with the idea of offloading it to friends or relatives.” Getting food from places where there’s more of it to places where there’s less remains a struggle.
