Our Stand


We declare that the world is designed to work.

 We are responsible for what does not work.

We make the difference.


  No matter how technologically advanced

we become, we cannot escape our fundamental

relationships with food and each other.


The possibility of these relationships is

the world market.  In this context, the world works

for everyone free of scarcity and suffering.


We commit ourselves to the possibility

this world market is for the

future generations of this planet.

If we can imagine as real a world that works free of scarcity and suffering,

then it is possible.  Each of us has in us that which makes the difference.

Dare we be ourselves.




The importance of "Our World Market" book

lives of how we work together at the market.  It supports the

recognition of critically important information discovered and applied

at the market during the last 28 years.  This information is available

in Robert's book "Our World Market".


It is Robert's commitment to share the information in his book with

everyone that cares about people, no matter what their  background may be.  This information is a breakthrough in our understanding of how we are naturally designed to work together at home and on the job.  Read testimonials from readers of "Our World Market" book at: www.ourworldmarket.com/testimonials/

 ‘Our World Market’  readers share their experiences:

Robert Blazer has written this all encompassing book dedicated to the transformation of the individual, the group, and even the world as a whole.  It is for the students of life, who stand at the crossroads, at the place where two paths diverge.


One is the path of the individual, a well worn path indeed.  The mundane path of ego, materialism, scarcity, disconnect, and suffering. Where no one takes any responsibility for the way things are.  The continuous perpetuation of the downward spiral of humanity.


The other path is of the Generational Distinction. It stands alone as a way of understanding the complexities of human interactions, as it relates to the pair and group dynamic.  It also offers self discovery and mastery, in Robert’s explanation of the inherited world view.  The book offers relief in how to free oneself of this world view, through simple understanding. These concepts have been proven to work in the Dekalb Farmers Market, and my life as well.


The information, in this book, must not only be read and understood, but internalized.


I would like to thank Robert and Barbara Blazer for helping me on my path to this internalization. They are two of the kindest, intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure

of knowing. This book, and their efforts, have been instrumental in turning my life around.

It has meant so much to me and my family and I am eternally grateful.


Mike Williams, Market Customer

Before, I only believed in human beings as male and female.  Now I see from the generational distinction in the book that people have opposite energy: mothers and daughters are opposite energy and fathers and sons are opposite energy.  This means that both genders can be either expanding or contracting.


I also believe that the world is really designed to work.  I see that by working together with my partner who is opposite my energy.  I can create an idea for a project as an expanding energy person and my partner will work on completing the project as a contracting energy person.  Finally, together we can contribute different things to our work.


Before I understood the generational distinction, we used to blame each other by not understanding each other.  Now I understand who they are and who I am.  There is no

more blaming each other.


I see balance in my own family because I have a son and a daughter.  My daughter acts the same as I act because we are the same energy and my son acts the same as his mother because they are the same energy.  I understand them better because of the generational distinction.


Anteneh Yizengaw, International Products

In “Our World Market, The Generational Distinction,” Robert Blazer shares what he has learned from years of experience observing people and behavior and building a successful business heavily dependent on people working together.


The information in this book, when applied to work or personal relationships, can have a profound impact on productivity, relationships with others, understanding of others and self, and general well-being.  I found especially interesting the observations and explanations of people as either “expanding” or “contracting”.  Like yin and yang, expanding and contracting people are complementary opposites.


As the organizational structure at Your DeKalb Farmers Market demonstrates and as we have seen in our business, pairing expanding and contracting people together in the work place creates a team with balanced energy that capitalizes on the expanding person’s tendency to “think big” and the contracting person’s tendency to get the job done.


Robert also shows how these differences affect family relationships.  The book teaches how

to identify these variations in people, how these distinctions affect workplace and family relationships, and how to use this information for personal and professional benefit.

Thank you, Robert!


Mary Long, Market Customer and Attorney

Knowing the energy distinction as an expanding energy person makes me understand myself better.  As a space provider, I am coming from nothing to create something which is missing.


After knowing the distinction that mothers and daughters are opposite energy and fathers

and sons are opposite energy, my family life has changed and become stronger.  By knowing my son is the same energy as me, and my daughter’s energy is opposite me, we now have a different relationship, not blaming each other for the way we are, understanding each

other better and creating a more peaceful family life.  With my husband of 31 years, my relationship is better after knowing he is a contracting energy person.  He likes things to be the same all the time and is a timely person.


Learning about the organizational structure is a good thing to know, especially when you

have to deal with people.  Three level communication is useful in problem solving and achieving good results.


Partnership is a very important point: first, being with a partner makes each other feel

better, stronger, happier and able to take responsibility for things which we can accomplish together, creating strong relationships like family members.  Good partnerships create space for growing in business and as a human being.


Reti Canaj, Human Resources

“Our World Market” is a legacy of the truths that Robert has discovered in business and in life. He shares these discoveries as a gift to those desiring to live and work in harmony and

in peace – absent scarcity and suffering. What better application to these truths, than the diverse and successful Atlanta landmark, Your Dekalb Farmers Market, founded by Robert

in 1977!


The generational and gender maxims presented are profound and seem unchallengeable in explaining human and organizational relationships. Knowledge is freeing, when you see and apply new understanding to improve family and work relationships.  His explanation of dual and opposite energy and how generations are distinguished is not only enlightening but fun to see in place within my own family and coworkers.


I have a greater appreciation for my own self and those I know because of “Our World Market”.
