Event Date: 
Wednesday 5th March, 2014 - 10:00am to 4:00pm
Event Organisers: 
Dumfries & Galloway Farmers' & Community Markets Association

Organised by Dumfries & Galloway Farmers’ and Community Markets Association, this event is open to ALL D&G food and drink producers and craft workers, and to farmers’ market organisers.  People who aspire to trading as a producer or crafter as well as prospective market organisers are also most welcome.

The event will comprise of:

  • An update on the last 2 years of the DGFCMA marketing project, including an update on social media opportunities
  • A presentation from Wilma Finlay on the process of moving from being an artisan producer to manufacturer.  She’ll talk us through margins, business development and branding
  • An insight on what we learned from the DGFCMA trip to Borough Market
  • Your chance to input into the next phase of DGFCMA, including how we use our Community Food Fund grant which has just been approved
  • DGFCMA’s AGM – which will be very simple and quick

Why should you attend? 

  • Fantastic opportunity to network – this is perhaps the most valuable aspect of the day
  • To share knowledge and experience – this year all our speakers are from within D&G’s own food and craft sector, the presentations and workshops will be interesting and relevant to most local businesses
  • An opportunity to influence decision making for DGFCMA – we’re very open to ideas and suggestions!
  • Yummy local food for lunch!

Producers & Markets Event takes place on Wednesday 5th March at Cream o’ Galloway Visitor Centre, from 10am – 4pm

Registration is essential for catering purposes.  To register attendance please contact Margaret Vaughan Mwbvaughan@aol.com  or phone 07725 326635
