The following are the session titles and descriptions on which MIFMA will present on:
Choosing the Right Farmers Market for You:
Farmers markets can be a great place to grow your business and build loyal customers. Every farmers market is unique and has its own customer base, rules, product and vendor mix, and daily operations, so it’s important to do your research to find out which farmers market is the best fit for your farm or business.
Selling at the Farmers Market: What You Need to Know about Food Safety, Licenses and Liability
While every farmers market is unique, there are rules and regulations at the federal, state and local levels pertaining to farmers markets and the vendors to sell at them that farms and businesses must follow. In this session, learn about food safety practices and licensing for farmers market vendors, as well as steps you can take to protect your business and products at the market.
