Farmers Markets Basics

Whether you’re a new or an experienced market manager, you’ll get tips on farmers market basics.


Making Market Magic

With a wave of the Market Manager’s wand — POOF! — a Farmers Market happens!

To the public, this is what appears to happen.

But market folk know the reality behind the illusion: much work goes into the creation of a vibrant atmosphere that’s conducive to robust vendor sales.

Market Magic takes solid research, innovative collaboration, strong planning, and first-rate implementation.

Let’s go behind the curtain to discover the secrets of creating and promoting a thriving market.
