Our Role In A Farmer's Market

Our local farmer's markets are a wonderful way to find fresh produce and bring more nutrition to our daily lives. South Central Public Health District educates and regulates food vendors to help keep our markets safe.

For both vendors and customers, the links below can be a helpful refresher for rules, guidelines, and precautions while handling food at a market.
