Celebrate National Farmer's Market Week
We blogged earlier about Utah farmers markets rules and regulations, and since it's National Farmer's Market Week, we wanted to provide other resources from the federal government for farmers and communities that want to start a market or learn about what the U.S. Department of Agriculture can do for them.
Of course, the hard work isn't over once the farmers market has started. Farmers and local communities will likely need ideas on how to advertise the new market and keep it running. The U.S. Department of Agriculture provides grants through the Agricultural Marketing Service and provides marketing ideas.
And that's not all. Interested in organic produce or how to become a certified organic producer? Need information about seed testing? The Agricultural Marketing Service is a great place to start your research. If you need help locating a Federal law or regulation the website mentions, you can contact the law library.
