What is MarketReady?

Welcome to the MarketReady Producer Training Program. We help growers and producers prepare themselves when selling to restaurants, schools, grocery and retail outlets, wholesale, etc. It is very important for farmers to be prepared to meet the needs of their buyers -- so we are here to help with that. Buyers need their suppliers to manage their own food safety, insurance, product quality, traceability risks, and much more. MarketReady addresses these issues and seeks to educate our fabulous food suppliers about how to succeed in today's markets - in order to keep farming.

Our training is based around best business practices identified by buyers in these markets that are actively seeking to engage local suppliers. MarketReady will help farm vendors selling dairy, fruits, vegetables, meats, value-added products, and more create a successful business strategy.
