Northeast SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
Understanding Food Safety
Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines for Farmers' Markets
The number of farmers’ markets in Massachusetts has increased significantly in recent years, and as interest from farmers and consumers has grown, the variety of foods and types of vendors has multiplied as well. CISA has developed this document in order to provide suggestions for how health departments may interpret the grey areas and to give some insight into how other health departments have applied state regulations and their own requirements on the ground.
