2019 Sponsor List Coming Soon!

Many of the more than 150,000 farmers, ranchers, food makers and event managers who operate businesses at almost 9,000 farmers’ markets throughout the United States need your product or services.

The Challenge: How can you reach those independent business owners?

The Solution: As the only national conference focusing specifically on making farmers’ markets and all market businesses thrive financially, the InTents Conference provides invaluable information and networking opportunities for farmers, food makers, and farmers’ market managers. The annual InTents Conference features 3 full days of keynote speakers, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, roundtables and a busy exhibitor marketplace.

Outreach continues throughout the year with a weekly email newsletter, popular blog, regional Vendor-101 classes for start-up businesses and continuing education for established market managers and market business owners.  

Meet your new customers at the InTents Conference.
