Food Safety for Kansas Farmers Market Vendors: Regulations and Best Practices
Farmers markets are growing in popularity across the UnitedStates and across Kansas. These markets provide a valuable market outlet for local farmers and allow consumers to purchase healthy local produce and other foods. To protect this key market outlet, it is essential that the food sold at farmers markets is produced and processed according to the relevant governmental rules, regulations, and guidelines. Not only will this ensure products that are as safe as possible, it will also assure your customers that your business, as well as the entire farmers market, has product quality and safety in mind.
