As we conclude our third season as market managers, we look back and reflect on how successful it has been.
We are a producer only market. Our vendor guidelines are handmade, homemade and homegrown products and produce. We like to keep our produce and locally branded food items as the main focus of the market and add local artisans into the mix.
The State of Missouri Ag Department has a definition of what a farmer’s market is. The organizations that we belong to also have criteria and expectations of farmer’s markets. As we get into the offseason, we will post and share information regarding market guidelines.
We welcome feedback and would like to hear from you. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we plan the next season, it will be nice to see what our community has to say about what they would like to see in the market.
