I'm looking for a primer on the business-side of the small-scale produce production.

Let's say I've got the horticulture down to a science, but I'm still awfully green when it comes to regulations, insurance, markets, etc.
I'm especially interested in the marketing nuances here. Perhaps "market analysis" is a more fitting way to describe the sort of data/analyses that might best inform the tricky business decisions—like, say, farmers' markets versus CSAs versus co-ops versus restaurant supplies?—that are inevitable.
I'm sure I'll find useful any and all recommended blogs, extension publications, periodicals, trade groups, or anything else you might come up with. Thanks for your help.
