“Shine Bright * Stand Out”
November 8-9, 2017
VAFMA is hosting the Fifth Annual Virginia Farmers Market Conference November 8 & 9, 2017 at the City Market Building in Downtown Roanoke.
This year’s theme “Shine Bright, Stand Out” will highlight strategies to ensure your famers market stands out as a leader in your community. Topics cover areas critical to farmers market management success, such as new food safety rules, data collection, marketing, leadership training, community development, and event planning. The agenda is finalizing and should be available by July 1.
Attendees will enjoy staying at the new Hampton Inn & Suites in Downtown Roanoke, VA. There will be more information on how to take advantage of the special VAFMA hotel rate coming soon. Room rates will be set at $99/night for a double room; please let us know in the Eventbrite ticket survey if you would like help getting paired up with a roommate.
This is an excellent opportunity to get connected to resources, network with market managers from across the state, and find out more about the Virginia Farmers Market Association and how YOU can get involved!
