The ISFS collaborated with the BC Association of Farmers' Markets (BCAFM) to develop a resource guide that highlights successful farmers' market farmers and communicate their best business and operations management practices. Funding was provided by the Investment Agriculture Foundation and VanCity.
Document and share best business and management practices of farmers selling at BC farmers' markets, in order to:
1. Identify the path to a successful small-scale, direct market farming operation.
2. Develop a strong direction and support for the local, direct market food system.
3. Increase awareness of small scale farmers selling direct to the public through farmers' markets, within the farming sector and amongst consumers.
This project concluded in the summer of 2017. The following resources are available to the public.
