Food Safety for Farmers Market Vendors

Join Londa Nwadike, University of Vermont Extension Food Safety Specialist, for the first of a 3-part series on direct marketing.
Farmers Markets are a great venue for food producers and value-added processors to introduce their products to consumers, make sales, and also to get valuable feedback on their products.
To protect this valuable outlet for your food products, it is essential that all the food sold at the market is as safe as possible and follows local, state and federal regulations. This helps to assure your customers that your business, as well as the entire Farmers Market, has product safety and quality in mind. This webinar will provide information on the food safety risks associated with direct marketing of foods, the regulations that farmers market vendors are required to follow, and strategies/best practices for maintaining a safe environment at farmers markets.
