Farmers Market Regional Workshops

Farmers’ markets and direct-to-consumer opportunities 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 2020, 76 farmers' markets were registered with the Kansas Department of Agriculture's Central Registration of Farmers' Markets.

To support Kansas' farmer's markets, six workshops are generally held throughout the state in February. Due to COVID-19, these workshops were held virtually this year. These workshops are hosted by the Kansas Department of Agriculture and K-State Research & Extension.

The 2021 Farmers' Market/Direct-To-Consumer Virtual Workshop sessions have concluded. Below are the recordings and resources shared during these sessions.
