Bath, NY – Farm markets continue to be a popular source of local food.  Consumers usually find them to be informal, friendly places to get their weekly supply of fresh farm products.  In light of food safety concerns among the general public, direct marketing venues are coming under increased scrutiny by state inspectors. Farm market vendors and managers must comply with particular rules that apply to farm markets, while maintaining a casual atmosphere.
 
This workshop will provide updates for farmers and farmer market managers about rules and food safety guidelines for farmer vendors.  Staff from the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets will review the rules, licenses and regulations associated with direct marketing at farm markets and other similar settings.  Diane Eggert of the NYS Farmers Market Federation will address specific issues around food safety, and making the most of the modern farm market setting.
 
This session is a unique opportunity to ask questions and clarify which regulations are real and which are rumors gone wild.  
 
Workshop fee: $15.00 per person or farm family
