Did you know that in the last 20 years, the number of Farmers Markets tracked by the USDA has increased by nearly 400%? The growth of Farmers Markets, CSAs, “Farm-to-Table” restaurants, etc. are all a product of the “locavore” movement. But how does that fit into the agricultural landscape overall? How do they work? How do you effectively manage this new business unit? These are all questions we are hoping to answer at this panel discussion.
Join us on Thursday, November 20th to hear from Mac Edwards, former Memphis Farmers Market board member and current restaurateur, and Mark Hoggard, current manager of the Agricenter Farmers Market. We will engage this panel to educate us about what they do, and how they participate in these channels.
Join us at the AgriCenter’s Horticulture Room for this program, a Farmers Market inspired lunch will be served!
When: Thursday, November 20th, 11:30am
Where: AgriCenter, Horticulture Room
