S.D. Farmers Market Coalition ~ Sept. 2022 Update
In new business, Kristine reminded attendees of the upcoming Specialty Crop Field Day at SDSU, and Laura reminded attendees to consider nominating their vendors as Specialty Crop Producer of the Year. Discussion on the group was had regarding the purpose and set up. Attendees confirmed things that they want to continue to get out of the group include networking, learning, sharing ideas, and building things like the EBT program across the state. From this, we decided that we’d like to set up the group as a chapter of SDSPA.
Starting in January, members will have the option of adding the Farmers Market chapter on to their membership, and the chapter will elect a board of four people. Currently, the group has three in leadership positions, and so we are really needing one individual to help the leadership team through January. If you may have availability to do this, please email Laura.
The S.D. Farmers Market Coalition meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 11 MT/12 CT via Zoom. Our next meeting will be Thurs., Oct. 13, 2022. To get added to the Coalition list, email SDSPA.
