Michigan Farmers Market Conference
Date: March 4, 2014 - March 5, 2014
Location: Plant and Soil Sciences Building at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI
To help meet the needs of Michigan’s farmers markets and market farmers and vendors, MIFMA is pleased to host an annual Michigan Farmers Market Conference. MIFMA has been hosting an annual farmers market training session during MSU’s Agriculture and Natural Resources week since 2007 and has been hosting an annual two-day conference since 2011.
The two-day conference will feature three tracks led by experts in farmers market management and agriculture: (1) a market manager Boot Camp Track designed for new and beginning market managers; (2) an Advanced Track for managers who are looking for specialized information; and (3) a Farmer/Vendor Track designed for farmers who direct-market through farmers markets. Each track will build on the information that attendees found helpful at last year’s second annual conference, while providing up-to-date information on timely topics related to farmers market management and/or marketing.
