Farmer Market Legal Toolkit
The Toolkit was created in response to recurring questions from market managers. It is built around the three most common legal issue areas that markets encounter: understanding business structures, accepting SNAP benefits, and managing risks. This online Toolkit provides legal resources, best practice recommendations, and case studies on enhancing market governance structures, accepting SNAP benefits, and managing common risks. Market leaders can use these legal tools to clarify responsibilities and expectations of markets, their vendors, and host sites, among others.
If you think this resource would be valuable to colleagues and partners, please forward this email, or spread the word on social media.
Want to learn how to use the Toolkit? Join us for a Webinar on the Farmers Market Legal Toolkit to learn about legal resources, best practice recommendations, and stories from other markets.
Webinar Date/Time: Thursday, February 1st, 2018 12:00-12:30 p.m. EST
