Online Farmers Market Courses Now Available

Texas Local Food Education & Discovery has introduced two free online courses: “How Social Media Can Help Promote Your Farmers Market” and “Selling at a Farmers Market for Beginners.” Both courses are introductory-level (101). The first offers a basic overview on social media as a promotional tool for farmers markets, and is designed for farmers market organizers new to social media, needing a refresher course, or looking for promotional support. In the second course, you will learn whether farmers markets are the right sales outlet for your business and how to research which farmers market to choose, and you will gain knowledge that will support you in making your decision on selling at any farmers markets.
