Tis the season: Michigan Farmers Markets Association hosts 2-day conference as number of markets grow | The Republic

The Michigan Farmers Market Association has been designing a Market Manager boot camp that sounds like a very promising way to train managers- much like the MarketU training that I had begun to design while working at marketumbrella.org. (Rumor has it that marketumbrella.org may be almost ready to start their version in early 2013, so keep an ear out for that announcement by the way.) State convenings can be useful to outside audiences because of the new resources that become available to download after one of these conferences takes place. Presentations from outside experts, case studies from markets and program measurements are often available on their websites.
