Webinar: Farmers Markets Physical Redesign for Covid-19 Mitigation

COVID-19 | Emergency Response | FMC | Webinars

Farmers market operators are among those leading for how local food is meeting this historic moment including “drive-thru” models, delayed entry, pre-bagged goods, new layouts and more. For this webinar, market operators shared how they actually implemented a new COVID-19 practice through the physical redesign of market spaces. It did not cover online platforms that some market leaders are using to build new, off-site purchasing systems; that topic will be covered in future webinars.
