Farmers Market Makeover


What are the most pressing challenges facing your farmers market? How might a “market makeover” help to attract customers, improve operations, or reduce risk? This toolkit describes 25 best practices for farmers markets. These best practices provide guidance for making market improvements and dealing with common issues. Not every suggestion outlined here will apply to every market—most will.
