The New Farmers Market
The New Farmers Market: Farm-Fresh Ideas for Producers, Managers & Communities is the bible for farmers and market gardeners in selling produce at farmers markets and for market managers and city planners in starting, managing, and promoting a market.
The book is also an invaluable resource for community activists to help educate the public about local food and agriculture, and help farmers markets and urban areas build vital urban communities surrounded by a thriving rural economy. The book features public education programs about local agriculture such as taste festivals, Shop With the Chef Programs, Cooking With Kids, The Senior Nutrition Program, and the Farmers Market Salad Bar Program.
The New Farmers Market is a must-have resource for growers interested in selling their farm or market garden products through farmers markets, as well as managers and city planners alike.
