The Wisconsin Farmers Market Association (WFMA) was created to bring together resources and expertise from around the state to help farmers markets in Wisconsin thrive. The WFMA’s purpose is to promote local food consumption through the support and education of market managers, vendors, communities and consumers.
The Fall Workshop is being held in two locations, Green Bay and Lake Mills (near Madison) and hopes to provide information and resources for market managers.
“Farmers markets play such a critical role in both living local and living healthy,” Matthew Olson said. “Having the opportunity to share marketing knowledge and promote their success is equal parts an honor and exciting.”
