Details About This Meeting

Goals For This Meeting
There are four, at least, goals for this meeting. The first is scheduling the opening day of the farmers market. With a mild winter, local residents are thinking of growing things. However, cold weather is upon us. We look to others to grow fresh foods. The second goal is to offer renewal vendor training for the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Voucher Program. The third goal is simply to renew vendor applications. Next, discussing market manager changes needs to be examined. The fifth and final goal os this gathering is to exchange views on strengthening relationships among vendors, market patrons, and other supporters.
