This five-part series outlines policies that affect farmers markets. It was created to help communities support the growth and vitality of farmers markets throughout Kansas.
Farmers markets across Kansas are subject to a wide variety of regulations that can either help them thrive or cause them to wither. A Guide to Operating Farmers Markets in Kansas is a five-part series outlining those policies in an effort to help communities support the growth and vitality of farmers markets throughout Kansas.
The guides were designed to help market organizers and key stakeholders understand policy implications so they can advocate for changes and anticipate the needs of a new or existing market.
