Farmers' Market Resources
Consumers are expressing a renewed interest in buying food directly from the farmer or grower in their local areas. One reason for this consumer change is the new awareness of the importance of fresh vegetables and fruit in the diet, which are creating opportunities for marketing local produce to consumers through farmersí markets. Also, the economic opportunities and rewards of the markets in a communityís development are being realized from community leaders.
Structuring and Organizing your Market
To develop and maintain a viable farmersí market, an organized and well thought out process needs to be implemented. The AgriMissouri Farmers' Market Handbook was created to guide you through this process and link you to all of the state, federal and local resources and regulations you will need.
The AgriMissouri Website offers a comprehensive listing of farmersí markets in Missouri, contact names and market information. If your community would like assistance in organizing a farmersí market or know of a farmersí market that is not listed in AgriMissouri, please contact:
