Kansas Farmers' Market Regional Workshops

Friday, February 9 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm • Organized By Kansas Department of Agriculture
22201 W Innovation Dr, Olathe, Kansas 66061

About

The Kansas Department of Agriculture, K-State Research and Extension and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment will host five regional workshops in February 2018 to assist farmers’ market vendors and managers.

 

Kansas farmers’ markets not only provide a fresh food source, but also stimulate the local economy. In 2017, 85 farmers’ markets were registered with KDA’s Central Registration of Farmers’ Markets. 

 

“Farmers’ markets provide growers a chance to tell their farm’s story, with face-to-face interaction with consumers,” said Londa Nwadike, consumer food safety specialist with K-State Research and Extension and the University of Missouri. “But there are also legal, safety and financial parameters that farmers need to understand before choosing to sell at a farmers’ market.”

 

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

  • Vendor Marketing and Communications
  • Growing in High Tunnels 101
  • Regulations on Selling Meat, Eggs & Poultry
  • Sales Tax for Vendors

 

KDA’s Division of Weights and Measures will also offer free scale certification at the workshops for attendees.
