To Sell At The Market

We've gotten a few inquiries from folks wanting to sell at the market this year, so here's reminder that all growers of edible produce at the Webb City Market must complete a food safety training course before selling.

We've already held our food safety workshop for this year. There are a couple of other options - there's a workshop in Mountain Grove on Thursday afternoon, March 10. To register, call 417-547-7533.

Cornell University is opening an on-line course up for registration in the next couple of days.

The Mountain Grove workshop is free, the Cornell University course is $50 and this may be the last course they offer at that rate. Their grant is running out and it may have to go up to $300.

Taking the training does not guarantee a spot at the market. The vendor still has to have an application approved.

We'll have information available at our new vendor meeting at 10 am, Saturday, March 12 at the Webb City Library, 101 South Liberty.
