Farmers Market 2“Best Practices at Farmers’ Markets and Farm Produce Stands”

More and more consumers are becoming interested in fresh produce, healthy nutrition, and supporting local businesses. That’s why the number of farmers’ markets have significantly increased over the past decade. In Florida, it is estimated that over 230 farmers’ markets operate in the state. With their steady growth, farmers’ markets have become an important source of revenues for cottage food businesses, vendors and farmers.

On Tuesday, August 8, 2017, the University of Florida, Food Science and Human Nutrition Department will be hosting a teaching workshop from 8:45 AM – 4:00 PM.

Although everyone is welcomed to attend, the target audience is Florida farmers’ market managers, vendors, and any farmers and cottage food operators who are interested in selling their food at farmers’ markets.
