Food price and market development are important factors affecting farmers' rights to food. Through The quantile regression, this paper investigated and compared the effects of food price on nutrient intake of farmers of different income categories in rural China. The paper also looked into the impact of local market size and the distance to market on nutrient intake of residents of local communities. Result: The impact of different food prices on nutrient intake of rural residents varied and the price of cereals has a positive impact on nutrient intake of low-income groups. The distance to market has in most cases negative impact on nutrient intake of farmers; nevertheless, a larger market is conducive to nutrient intake of farmers. Under the conditions of ever-increasing food prices, attention on one hand should be given to the impact of higher prices on the welfare of farmers and on the other hand to the establishment of sound rural food market.
