1. Find a sponsoring group.
An existing community organization is a good choice.
2. Find local farmers.
Contact your state’s department of agriculture. You’ll need at least 20 to 40 participating vendors; 60 to 70 is ideal.
3. Set the stage.
Pick a central location such as a municipal park or town square. Saturday mornings are prime time, but also consider Sundays and weekday evenings.
