Farm Market Conv
MFFM’s annual farmers’ market convention will take place on Sunday, January 31st, at the Maple Hill Farm Inn and Convention Center in Hallowell (just outside of Augusta). This day-long convention will bring together market farmers, market managers, and others for a day of shop talk and networking. As usual, we’ll have breakout sessions all day on a variety of topics, including:

  • Food safety requirements for a safe and legal farmers’ market
  • Pricing: breaking even or making a profit?
  • Scaling up your FM business
  • Working with municipal governments – how to build good relationships
  • Developing (and enforcing) market rules
  • Effective outreach to low-income shoppers
  • Market promotion and outreach
  • Farmers’ markets in 2020 and beyond
  • Labor law and your FM business
  • Market manager roundtable discussion
  • What’s happening at your market? News from around the state
