Farmers Market Internships will increase customers and sales at participating farmers markets by expanding the capacity of the Market Manager and Board. Interns will assist farmers market managers in outreach and coordination of the market. Interns learn about North Dakota’s farmers markets and develop skills in marketing and project management. The farmers market benefits from increased exposure and will likely gain new vendors and more shoppers.

Farmers Market Internships are the result of a partnership between FARRMS and Dakota College at Bottineau. This is part of a three year grant in 2019, 2020, and 2021, funded by USDA AMS Farmers Market Promotion Program. The project also includes a needs assessment survey, education for farmers market managers, and a marketing campaign to grow ND farmers markets.

Program History

The farmers market internship program is a partnership between FARRMS and Dakota College at Bottineau to expand ND’s farmers markets. In 2019, 2020, and 2021, farmers market managers will receive training and interns so they can better respond to consumers’ needs. A needs assessment was conducted in 2019 to determine what customers are seeking and what sorts of marketing farmers market vendors are already doing. The findings of the needs assessment will be incorporated into farmers market manager trainings provided in 2020 and 2021. This project is funded by a USDA AMS Farmers Market Promotion Program grant.
