Guide for Opening Farmers' Markets on Federal Property
The U. S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Marketing Service released "Opening a Farmers Market on Federal Property: A Guide for Market Operators and Building Managers" (PDF/262KB). The publication was jointly published by the Urban Development/Good Neighbor Program of General Services Administration, which administers most federal buildings. This publication discusses the issues involved in locating a farmers' market on federal property: security, insurance needs, parking, the use of utilities and amenities, and all the other things you need to consider. It tells who to contact for information, points to some helpful government Web sites and offices, and offers case studies of successful farmers' markets on public property.
