Building Capacity and the Local Food System Via Farmers' Market Trainings
Our team works with all farmers' markets in the region to assist with starting/strengthening SNAP at the market programs by promoting farmers' markets to SNAP clients, arranging field trips and market tours, providing cooking demonstrations and incentives for SNAP shoppers. In addition to SNAP @ the Market, we also offer a Farmers' Market Vendor Training series in the fall and spring that provides education to farmers' market vendors on topics that will build capacity and ultimately bolster the local food system.
