On March 20th and 21st, 2017, on beautiful Mission Bay in San Diego, attendees took advantage of two full days of speakers, panels, roundtables and networking opportunities that offered new insights, skills and resources to make your small business financially sustainable and ready to grow. Join us again in 2018! Whether you’re a farmer, artisan food maker, or farmers’ market manager, you’ll find smart new ways to increase your income.

 

2017 speakers included experienced farmers, food makers, farmers’ market managers, authors and experts in the fields of food, business, human resources, marketing and more. See the full 2017 schedule here. We’ll have more information about the 2018 schedule as it gets closer.

 

Discover new sources of ingredients, packaging, operating supplies, signage, insurance, management services, marketing materials and more in the Resource Lounge, while you compare notes and gain new perspectives from fellow farmers, managers and entrepreneurs.
