This winter brings the 3rd annual Mastering the Farmers Market Series, and this time it is coming to southern Illinois.
Part One: Cultivating Customers at the Farmers Market
Your booth at the farmers market is the face of your farm business. We will share fresh strategies to help you build, maintain, and enhance your recognizable brand. Discover the power of effective booth design and customer connections to create a loyal following. Plus, get social media tips to help you stand out from the “local foods” crowd.
Part Two: Money Matters at the Farmers Market
Your farmers market booth is a business, but are you equipped to run it like one? Join local small business experts who will help you build a solid budget, understand a variety of inventory and sales tracking options like Square, and tackle accounting software like Quickbooks with confidence.
This program is brought to you in partnership with:
