Steve Malone, Administrator of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures Division, shares the "how-to" on correctly packaging produce for a farmers' market. If selling products by weight, the producer must have an authorized scale. Contact the Department of Ag for approved scales. Two options for selling produce: (1) sell from bulk, no packaging required. Customers select the product they want which is then weighed and priced according to the weight. (2) pre-packaged by weight. The packaging must have a label or placard that states the quality and price. Only one method can be selected for each product sold. For more information contact 402.471.4292 or agr.ne.gov/division/wam/wam.htm. A University of Nebraska publication on Weights and Measures is also available at ianrpubs.unl.edu/epublic/live/g1944/build/g1944.pdf.
