VAFMA’s 7th Annual Virginia Farmers Market Conference is November 13-15 in Staunton at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel.
This 3-day event will have targeted workshops, dynamic speakers, and fun-filled social networking events including a winery tour! There will be concurrent sessions for beginners and experienced participants, for market vendors and market managers along with an exhibit area packed with resources.
This year’s theme focuses on Agritourism -- an often untapped path for helping shoppers discover farms and farmers markets. Sessions will also cover other topics tailored to the needs of market managers and vendors.
