Marketing Basics Workshop




Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture 630 Bedford Road, Pocantico Hills, NY 10591

Making it to the market with a great product is only half the battle in farming – now that you’re there, how do you sell the most product possible? This presentation will help the small farmer leverage valuable research by the multi-million dollar supermarket industry and apply it to their farmers’ market selling experience. Expect to learn valuable tips on how to appeal to a customer’s behavioral habits, how to break down your market segmentation, and how your business might appeal to a wider range of shoppers. Presenters are staff members from Greenmarket which runs 54 farmers’ markets in New York City. They will offer case studies of marketing projects developed in collaboration with direct market farmers in New York State.
