Farmers’ Market Food Safety Workshops

If you plan on selling at a farmers' market, this workshop is a must for you in learning what you can and can't do with selling your food products (both raw and processed foods). Are you familiar with the Missouri Jams and Jelly Law?  What do you need to do in order to provide samples of your product?  Do you need a hand washing station at your market?  For these answers and more be sure to attend one the workshops.

The Bureau of Environmental Health Services, Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services will conduct a workshop for producers of foods sold at farmer’s markets at four locations. The focus will be on the regulations and exemptions, approved source, food safety and sanitation, and processing of non-exempt foods. Locations are as follows:
