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 2006 survey conducted by the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), farmers' markets in 2005 averaged 48,857 square feet in size, which is about the size of a medium-sized retail grocery store. The smallest farmers' market was 20 square feet, and the largest was 3.4 million square feet.
