Farmers' Market

Return to Horticulture Page

Farmers Markets are an important part of the communities they serve. They are a place for farmers and local business owners to sell their products and get feedback from their customers. They are a low-cost way to try out a new business. Farmers markets increase access to healthy foods and insure against food supply chain problems. They help create jobs and keep money flowing in the local economy.

Trainings for Market Managers

  • Farmers Market Short Course
    Offered in March, this weekly short course will develop your knowledge of farmers market topics specific to Wisconsin. To ensure that markets have access to education across the state, the Wisconsin Farmers Market Association and the University of Wisconsin Extension bring together experts on food safety, regulations, risk management and the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program.
  • Farmers Market Workshop
    Offered at three locations in Wisconsin during February and March, this workshop will develop your skills and knowledge. Speakers share their expertise and there are two time slots reserved for round table discussions where attenedees can ask questions and share their knowledge.
