Webinar on Reducing Farmers' Legal Vulnerabilities
Minnesota Ag Connection - 05/19/2020

As farmers' markets add curbside pickup, take advance orders, and offer bundled market purchases, customers are getting fresh, local foods in the midst of a pandemic. But, these innovations can also bring legal risk as well. With some advance planning, market managers can address these risks and create a program with strength beyond COVID-19.

A May 21 webinar will cover issues including increased liability risk, shifting insurance needs, potential licensing obligations, and concerns about site agreements. Your webinar presenters have expertise in farmers' markets, legal obligations, and insurance. Learn where legal risk lies and what to do to resolve it.

Join Farm Commons, Center for Agriculture & Food Systems/Farmers Market Legal Toolkit and the Farmers Market Coalition for this webinar titled: Pickup and Order Options at Farmers' Market: Create resilience, not legal vulnerability. Registration is required.

It takes place at 2 p.m. Central time.

Farm Commons, based in Duluth, Minn., holds weekly Zoom open forums on Thursdays. If you missed this week's session, you can find it on the Zoom section of its COVID page.
