Farmers' Market Managers/Promoters

Farmers' market managers/promoters oversee markets in which farmers sell their products to consumers. Because farming is seasonal, more than two-thirds of all managers work for markets that are set up in temporary facilities. According to a survey by the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), farmers' markets can average 48,857 square feet in size, which is about the size of a medium-sized retail grocery store. The smallest farmers' market may be 20 square feet, and the largest might be 3.4 million square feet.
