Farmers Market Managers, Board Members, and Stakeholders! Join us for our 2017 Annual Farmers Market Gathering in Berea on Dec. 7 from 9-4pm!
Come meet and discuss your farmers market with your peers across the state! Any and all farmers market stakeholders welcome. Learn about our program and your market peers as we tackle some of the most common challenges markets face regardless of size, years of operation, or location. We’ll go over what we learned during this year’s programming, and what we all learned running our markets. You’ll go home with some new ideas and strategies to address your market’s needs, and a bigger network of support for your market!
Registration costs pay for the location, breakfast, and lunch only.
Travel compensation will be available for every market in attendance.
We’re excited to see you there!
