“The Farm to Market to Table Conference is a great resource,” says Robert Spencer, commercial horticulture specialist at the Alberta Ag-Info Centre and member of the conference organizing committee.
“Producers can learn more about direct market production and connect with their peers and experts.”
Alberta Farm Fresh Producers Association and The Alberta Farmers’ Market Association are partners in this annual event. Both associations will be holding their annual general meetings during the conference.
Spencer notes that the conference will feature 3 streams for both organizations’ audiences on the first day and streams for direct market producers on the second day.
It will include sessions for producers and farmers’ marketers - vendors and market managers - offered concurrently over the two days. Session topics will include those for horticulture crops, direct market products and marketing.
“Attendees will be able to connect with suppliers and service providers at the conference’s trade show,” he adds. “There will be a banquet in the evening of the first day and participants will have the option to tour a local vertical farm on both days as one of the session.”
