Food Safety Regulations for Farmers' Markets
Food is everywhere at farmers’ markets. And where there is
food there is a responsibility to keep it safe for people to eat. Market
managers and vendors can keep food safe by taking steps to prevent
contamination and keeping food at the appropriate temperature.
State, local, and individual market food safety regulations will
vary from one market to the next. In Indiana, farmers’ markets are considered
retail food establishments and are covered under the laws and regulations for
that type of operation.
