Food Safety at the Farmers Market


Many food businesses begin at local farmers markets. They are a fantastic way to get the word out about your new product and to get valuable feedback directly from consumers. Fresh produce, small-batch jams, and locally-made baked goods straight from the producer make these markets a popular destination for thousands of people. Farmers markets are ideal for creating relationships between businesses and local customers. Whether you are at the market with a new product or one that has repeat customers, selling local doesn’t mean food safety should be ignored.

Under the Microscope: Food Industry Sees Increase in FDA Inspections

Food safety is an important issue. About 128,000 people are hospitalized every year due to a foodborne illness, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Regulatory bodies, therefore, continue to adopt stricter measures to ensure compliance with food safety regulations and guidelines.

In the last few years, the FDA has increased efforts to reduce the number of food safety incidents. The most prominent move was the enactment of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed into law in 2011. More recently, the FDA aims to increase domestic and foreign inspections of regulated products.
