Selling food at farmers markets is popular and profitable and ensuring the safety of foods at markets is an important responsibility of producers and/or vendors. Join us for Farmers Market Food Safety, an educational workshop about bringing safe food products to the market.

This four-hour course addresses the unique challenges faced by those producing and/or selling food at farmers markets.

Food safety begins at product harvest and continues through processing, preparation, transportation, and point of sale. In this course, you will learn about controlling food safety risks from "farm to fork."
