Enhancing a Food Safety Culture in Farmers' Market

If the growth trend continues, there will be 10,000 farmers’ markets in the United States by 2020. Food science and technology researchers at Virginia Tech have created the Farmers’ Market Food Safety toolkit, a hands-on food safety educational program for consumers and vendors to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.

NIFA originally published this impact in the NIFA 2017 Annual Report. Want to read about more impacts like this? Check out Fresh from the Field, a weekly bulletin showcasing transformative impacts made by grantees funded by NIFA.
