Farmer's Market Workshops For Vendors

CHAMPAIGN, IL - The Land Connection's  Mastering the Farmers’ Market series in Champaign and Springfield continues this month with workshops designed to help farmers’ market vendors build their brand, attract more customers, and explore small business basics.

Money Matters at the Farmers’ Market in March will cover small business budgeting strategies from local experts and the ways that new technologies can help market vendors improve payment options for their customers, track sales more effectively, and run their booth more efficiently.

This series of workshops is made possible by a grant from the USDA as part of their Farmers’ Market Promotion Program.

Registration costs $25, which includes materials and light refreshments. For more information and to register:  http://thelandconnection.org/community/champaign-farmers-market/mastering-farmers-market-series.
