The internship program is part of a grant-funded project by DCB 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. In 2019 a needs assessment is being conducted 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.
Interns and market managers have the opportunity to enroll in the online Farmers Market Managers’ Training Course provided by Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB) and the ND Farmers Market and Growers Association (NDFMGA). For more info about this course see the fact sheet below.
