Think Like a Retailer: Webinar today for Farmers Markets

Greetings –

Join Eric Barrett today on a webinar with the Farmers Market Coalition and the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture.

We will help farmers market managers and farmers get into a mindset of thinking like a retailer.  There will be handouts to use at your farmers market to review your image and compare it to your competition. Eric has done many farmers market tours throughout the United States, cultivating ideas for what works best at farmers markets. He will share two publications: the Top 10 Opportunities for Farmers Market Vendors for farmers (vendors) and the Top 10 Attributes of the Best Farmers Markets for market managers.

The webinar begins at 1pm today, March 19, 2014.  Register and join us through this link:
