Great Turnout at Food Safety Workshop

We had almost 100 farmers come to the market's food safety workshops on Saturday. Of course, they won't all sell at Webb City - we've only got space for about 40 under the pavilion. Others will be selling at Neosho, Joplin, Monett, Pittsburg and other area markets. The good news is that local foods will be even safer thanks to the training.

We were epecially pleased to see some of our newest farmers. At right - Logan Paul with his mother Lois Troyer.

Our thanks to Patrick Byers with University of Missouri Extension and Russell Lilly with the Missouri Department of Health for giving up a Saturday to do training and to the USDA for a specialty crops grant to underwrite the costs.
