New Tool for Farmers Market Managers

February 3, 2011

The Farmers Market Coalition (FMC) and the Wallace Center at Winrock International, with support from USDA Risk Management Agency,  released the “Market Manager & Organizer FAQ” in January 2011.

The FAQ list works as an online guide to aid current and prospective farmers market managers and organizers looking to develop, expand, and improve their organizations.  This project – a collaborative effort of market leaders and FMC members and staff – clusters the information in seven categories covering market fundamentals, policies, staff, insurance & liability, market growth, and extending a market’s season.

Access the online version of this guide here.  Download a PDF of the full set of FAQs here.

The two groups recently presented at the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group’s Farmers Market Manager Pre-Conference event.  The presentation is available as a playlist on the FMC Youtube Channel as well as the Wallace Center Web site.

Both FMC and the Wallace Center are NSAC participating member organizations.
