promotional programs conducted by VDACS

Consumers are expressing a renewed interest in buying food directly from the farmer or grower in their local areas. One reason for this consumer change is the new awareness of the importance of fresh vegetables and fruit in the diet, which are creating opportunities for marketing local produce to consumers through farmers’ markets.

Wednesday, October 3rd at the Franklin Center 1:00 -4:00 PM This Workshop is free, but registration is required. To Register please call the Virginia Cooperative Extension-Franklin County Office at 540-483-5161 Thank you,
