  • Farmers’ markets across Kansas will have access to more marketing and promotion opportunities and receive other benefits provided through the Farmers’ Markets Promotion Act, SB 120, which was signed into law by Governor Sam Brownback.
    SB 120 designates the Secretary of Agriculture as the registration authority for farmers’ markets, establishes a central registration of the markets and limits the legal liability of registered farmers’ markets. There will be no fee associated with the registration. However, registered farmers’ markets will have access to marketing, outreach and advocacy efforts through the From the Land of Kansas state agricultural trademark program, the ability to receive benefits from federal grant dollars that are awarded to the Kansas Department of Agriculture on behalf of Kansas farmers’ markets and legal liability protection.
