FREE Brown Bag Lunch Webinar Series – Finding Your Profits Through Farmers Market Selection: March 9, 2016
The Farmers Market Federation of NY and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County and sponsored by Cornell University, is offering a Brown Bag Lunch Webinar “Finding Your Profits Through Farmers Market Selection. The webinars will introduce a new Online Farmers Market Decision Tool created by the Farmers Market Federation of NY and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, March 9 at 1pm. Registration for these webinars is required, but it is free of charge.
With funding from the NY Farm Viability Institute, the Federation and Cornell Cooperative Extension surveyed farmers markets across New York State to catalog a wide range of market characteristics to create the Online Farmers Market Decision Tool to help farmers and educators working with farmers, to find farmers markets to participate in by searching for market characteristics that will match your farm and personal goals. You can find a market that is producer only, or participates in the SNAP program, operates in a city center or a rural parking lot. Or you can look at management styles, fee structures, or a number of other features that you define. You will be given a list of markets that fit your parameters, along with contact information so that you can begin the process of joining those markets. This webinar will show you the Online tool and walk you through the process. The Online Farmers Market Decision Tool will be hosted on the Federation website and will be free for anyone to use.
For a guided tour of the new Online Farmers Market Decision Tool, register today.
