This week, Aug 6 – 12th is National Farmers Market Week. So for Today’s Tuesday Thoughts we are focusing on Farmers Markets.
If you are a farmer’s market organizer – do you have a severe weather plan?
Do provide information to your vendors about the expected weather on Farmers Market day and work with them to ensure their tents and displays are anchored and weighted properly?
On those HOT Summer days, are you prepared if a market visitor has heat stress?
Fundamentally – Are you being proactive to ensure the safety of your clients and vendors?
Earlier this year our CEO, Diane Cooper, attended the Oklahoma Farmers Market and AgriTourism conference. She was able to speak with Farmer’s Market organizers and Vendors at the WxIntegrations booth and learn about some of their unique weather related concerns and challenges, especially from a weather safety perspective. In addition to learning from people at the booth, she was also able to attend several of the session. In the video, she shares some of her takeaways.
What is the Tuesday Thoughts Series?
Tuesday Thoughts is a series in which we share insights from weather information, tidbits about us, as well as business tips. So watch for the #TuesdayThoughs hashtag!
