This one-of-a-kind program will be offered again in 2017-2018, as a 1-day training, specifically by and for Farmers’ Market Managers. The training will build on the Market Manager Training Manual, originally developed by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Space is limited and priority will be given to Alliance members. Participants will:
- Learn how recently passed legislation, including AB 1871, affects your market and how you can prepare for those changes,
- Develop skills necessary to run a successful farmers’ market,
- Network with and exchange best practices with other markets in your region and the state,
- Participants will receive a free copy of the “Market Manager Training Manual”
