S.D. Farmers Market Coalition April 2023 Meeting Minutes

At our April meeting, Whitney with MarketLink gave a presentation on the technology and assistance they offer for producers and markets for accepting SNAP benefits. We also discussed organizing a group of members to draft a grant proposal for the FMPP grant, as well as the need to share and complete the price survey for our markets.  This will be done at different times throughout the market season.

We realize it has become a busy time of year, and the meeting time might need to be adjusted again to accommodate our members. Participants should complete this survey of what time/ day is best for you to attend these meetings. You don’t need to create an account or add email, just type your name, hit ’sign in’ and then highlight the times that work for you (based on central time).

The next meeting will be Wed. May 17, 2023 at 9:00 MT/10:00 CT. We will hear from Kristine Reiner of Cash Cow Co-Op to learn about efficient and effective marketing strategies for producers and markets.
