Join us for the first ever-countywide market vendor training opportunity!  Markets from across San Juan County will join together on March 16 to train vendors to sell at the various Farmers/Growers Markets across the region. This is a great opportunity for current vendors to get necessary updates for the market and prepare for the 2019 growing season. New and potential vendors are strongly encouraged to attend to gain the necessary information for vending in the 2019 season.  Pre-registered participants will be entered into the raffle to win market prizes!
