Farmers Market Improvement Toolkit & “VegU-cation” Tips – USDA
Posted On: March 7, 2018
During the 2017 market season, the USDA Farmers Market tested “VegU-cation” and found that this fruit and vegetable education program was popular with their visitors and increased sales for their farmers. Visitors to the market attended a 10-minute demonstration class in the VegU tent, on how to grow, pick, and prepare that week’s featured fruit or vegetable.
The USDA also asked farmers market managers from across the country what makes their market successful, and created a the Farmers Market Improvement Toolkit to share their answers.
