*NEW! Resources for Farmers Selling at BC Farmers' Markets Best Business
Practices of Farm Vendors*

Hello members and colleagues,

The BCAFM is pleased to share a series of new resources we've developed in
collaboration with the Institute for Sustainable Food Systems (ISFS) at
Kwantlen Polytechnic University to support new, current, or potential
farmers in adopting best business practices.

The resources below feature lessons learned, examples, pictures and prompts
drawn from the real life experiences of farmers producing and selling a
variety of crops and products at farmers' markets in all regions of the
province. The lessons have been gleaned from the experiences of 15 farmers
across BC, that vary in production model, land tenure, farm scale, and
marketing strategies. The common thread is that all of them produce and
sell fresh, local products direct to consumers through BC farmers’ markets.

Explore these resources below and share them with your farm vendors, or add
them to your resource library. They are also available on the BCAFM website
