We asked. Market managers answered. It’s hard to be an expert in everything right away. These twelve Farmers Market Vendor Handouts are intended to make being a manager a little easier. Managers can share links to these online versions or provide hard copies directly to vendors. Handout topics range from vendor stall layout, to licensing, and insurance.
The handouts are a component of the Iowa Farmers Market Manager Toolkit.
Special thanks to all those that provided input into the development of the this toolkit and all the work you do for Farmers Markets in Iowa.
