Producers wanting to sell at farmers’ markets can learn about the basics at the Getting into Farmers’ Markets workshop.
Farmers’ markets in Alberta had more than $700 million in sales in 2012 and continue to see rapid growth. Topics include food safety culture and best practices, product pricing, and regulations. A panel of experienced vendors will also offer tips.
The day-long workshops will be held at the Garden Valley Community Hall (south of Spruce Grove) on April 21 and at the Provincial Building in Olds on April 28. The fee is $25 and includes lunch. Call Shelly Hall at 780-538-6208 to register.
