Farmers' Market Regional Workshops

Farmers’ markets are growing across the state and continue to be an important source of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy and other value added agricultural products from small towns to large metropolitan areas. In 2019, 57 farmers' markets were registered with the Kansas Department of Agriculture's Central Registration of Farmers' Markets.

To support Kansas' farmer's markets, we are pleased to offer six workshops throughout the state.

*Vendors can also bring their sales scale to get tested and certified for FREE by the Kansas Department of Agriculture. Vendors planning to get their scale certified will need to provide up to 5 years of scale test reports or, if the scale has never been certified, it must have an active NTEP Certificate of Conformance.
