Sustainability planning event planned for Ohio farmers’ markets

Ohio Farmers Market Sustainability Planning is a two-day workshop that is being held this Monday, Nov. 11 and Tuesday, Nov. 12, at the Ohio State University Extension Franklin County location., 2548 Carmack Road, Columbus, Ohio.

With the rapid pace of change in local food purchasing, technology advancements, and the growing use of terms like sustainable and local, how do we maintain and grow consumer demand, and ultimately their support of our farmers markets? How do we create thriving and sustainable marketplaces for our vendors and producers?

To address this question, the OSU Extension Direct Food & Agricultural Marketing Program and the Ohio Farmers Market Network are hosting a two-day workshop for farmers’ market managers who are interested in learning from experts from Grow NYC and Cornell Cooperative Extension Broome County. Sustainability Planning for Ohio Farmers Markets is an in-depth, hands-on workshop developed with your market and its sustainability in mind.

Based on resources developed by the Farmers Market Federation of New York, market managers will leave with an action plan they can take to their vendors, boards and/or communities for feedback, consideration and  implementation.
