Farmers Market Publications Updated

KSRE and KDA have updated three publications, available from
www.ksre.k-state.edu/foodsafety/topics/market.html, for farmers market vendors and others on the following topics:

  • Food Labeling for Kansas Food Producers and Processors;
  • Food Safety for Kansas Farmers Markets: Regulations and Best Practices;
  • Sampling Safely at Kansas Farmers Markets, Farm Stands, and Related Events

These publications are now available in Spanish. Note also that we update or check these publications every January, so the versions on the website are current.
