What Can the Dots Tell You?: Conducting a Rapid Market Assessment

  • Colette DePhelps, University of Idaho
  • Conducting a Rapid Market Assessment (RMA) is an efficient and inexpensive way for Farmers Markets to gather customer information and other information for improving their markets.  This session is for farmers, farmers market board members, market managers and others interested in learning how to conduct an RMA.  Actual data from two Moscow Farmers Market RMAs (2011 & 2018) will be used to illustrate RMA outcomes, show how RMAs can document changes in a market over time and how results can be used to understand the economic impact a market has on its community.  Session participants will leave with a clear understanding of how to move forward on planning a RMA for their Farmers Market.
