Leanne Culbreath, Wiregrass Farmer’s Market, and Debra Chester, Statesboro Mainstreet Farmer’s Market

Learn the ins and outs—and the joys and trials—of starting and building a sustainable community farmer’s market. Debra Chester of the Statesboro Mainstreet Farmer’s Market and Leeann Culbreath of the Wiregrass Farmer’s Market in Tifton will share their knowledge and stories from over a decade (combined) of managing small-town farmers markets in south Georgia. Topics will include goal setting/visioning; board development; state and local regulations; vendor recruitment and support; rule development and enforcement; marketing; community engagement; funding; craft regulation; and off-season activities. While the focus will be on small-town markets, the best practices shared will be useful in urban and non-traditional settings as well.
