I will be putting in documents of interest concerning Farmer’s Markets operations and development.
1. http://extension.oregonstate.edu/catalog/pdf/sr/sr1088-e.pdf Tools for Rapid Market Assessments (for Market Managers and Boards). Principally about ways to conduct customer feedback/request surveys at the market, and also how Boards can travel to other markets to conduct surveys, which is a mutual learning experience for both market organisations.
2. http://farmersmarketsnovascotia.ca/resources/ Farmers Markets of Nova Scotia Cooperative’s resource page, requiring membership to open up the documents linked which include FM Economic Impact study, Vendor profiles and suchlike.
