Webinar on Using Checklists for Risk Management at Farmers Markets

Developing checklists for your farmers market is a great risk management strategy. Checklists are one way that markets can actively address legal risks while also providing your market with a record that you have done your due diligence, should an issue ever arise. Many markets may benefit from developing three types of checklists: 1) Market Day Checklist, 2) Annual Legal Check-up, and 3) Annual Vendor Communications.

For more information on managing legal risks at your market, check out the risk management section of the Farmers Market Legal Toolkit.
