Regional Farmers’ Market Workshop- Southeast Region- Parsons

Kansas farmers’ markets not only provide a fresh food source, but also stimulate the local economy. In 2018, 95 farmers’ markets were registered with KDA’s Central Registration of Farmers’ Markets.

“Farmers’ markets provide growers a wonderful opportunity to have real interaction with consumers, and a chance to tell their farm’s story,” said Londa Nwadike, consumer food safety specialist with

K-State Research and Extension and the University of Missouri. “It’s also important for farmers to understand certain legal, safety and financial parameters before choosing to sell at a farmers’ market.”

Workshop topics will vary slightly by location. Highlighted topics include:

· Vendor Marketing and Communications

· Pest Control and Soil Health

· Regulations on Selling Meat, Eggs and Poultry

· Sales Tax for Vendors

KDA’s weights and measures program will also offer free scale certification at the workshops for attendees.
