Minnesota Farmers' Market Manual
Would you like to order the Farmers' Market Manual for Minnesota?
In 2006, the MFMA played a major role in the establishment of a statewide Minnesota Farmers’ Market Manual. It was a guide for both vendors and managers.
So much has changed in eight years! SNAP, EBT, credit and debit cards are becomming commonplace. Liability insurance is becoming a must. And concerns over food safety, sampling, cooking demonstrations and ready-to-eat foods are at an all time high. Not to mention the challenges of organizational structures and tax issues.
The 2013 Farmers' Market Manual for Minnesota is completely rewritten and full of the latest information regarding operating and participating in today's vibrant Minnesota farmers' markets. Chapters include:
Grants and Fundraising
and many more. Not only does the Manual go into detail about these subjects, but includes hundreds of links to resources and information from local markets, state agencies, and national leaders, organizations and markets.
Many of these resources can be found below, corresponding to each chapter in the Manual.
The manual can be ordered in a paper format, as a complete download, or by individual chapters.
