Farmers' Market / Direct-to-Consumer Regional Workshops
To support Kansas farmer's markets, six workshops are generally held throughout the state each February.
Farmers’ markets and direct-to-consumer opportunities are growing across the state.
Farmers’ markets and direct-to-consumer sales 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 2020, 76 farmers' markets were registered with the Kansas Department of Agriculture's Central Registration of Farmers' Markets.
The 2021 Farmers' Market/Direct-To-Consumer Virtual Workshop sessions have concluded. Below are the recordings and resources shared during these sessions.
