This is a one day conference that will be taking place on Thursday, February 9th and will provide a great opportunity for those of you that are interested in maximizing the economic benefits of Farmers Market in your community. Northeast Iowa RC&D, NICC, The Depot Outlet, and the Northeast Iowa Tourism Association are all partnering to put on this great conference to help advance local foods in Northeast Iowa.
The conference has three tracks.
Speakers will help producers maximize their selling options, communities maximize the economic benefits of their farmers markets, economic development and chamber directors be better able to aid new local food businesses, and market managers understand how to make the most of their markets. Attendees will have a chance to learn from others, network and make business connections.
It is targeted to local food producers, farmers market vendors, farmers market managers and economic development, chamber and tourism directors.
