KSRE/KDA Farmers Market Workshops Set for February 2020

Submitted by Londa Nwadike

KSRE is working again this year with the Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) to organize regional farmers market vendor workshops across the state. This year's dates and locations include: Iola, February 1; Wichita, February 8; Olathe, February 21; Hiawatha, February 22; Beloit, February 28; and Leoti, February 29. Online registration ($20/person which includes lunch) and more information will be available in due course from https://www.fromthelandofkansas.com/page/farmers-market-regional-workshops.

Vendors can again bring their sales scale to the workshop to get certified for free, which is a $40 value. Please share this information with anyone in your area that might be interested, and consider attending yourself.

Contact Londa Nwadike, lnwadike@ksu.edu, with questions on the workshops. Reimbursement scholarships are available from SARE for farmers market vendors or Extension personnel to attend the regional workshops ($100 scholarships to cover registration and travel expenses).

Contact Kerri Ebert, kebert@ksu.edu, for more information on the scholarships. Applications are available at https://kstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6LuWOmDRkIaYT7T. These workshops are generously supported by the Kansas Center for Sustainable Agriculture and Alternative Crops and the Kansas Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program.
