Cancelled Until Further Notice: Farmer's Market Scale Testing - 2020 Schedule

Due to concerns surrounding the current COVID-19 situation the annual Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets Scale Testing Events scheduled for the month of April are cancelled. Due to the situation, Farmers Market Vendors will not be prohibited in using their scales at the start of the Farmers Market season if not tested before.  The Agency will be exploring different options for possible testing at a later date as circumstances evolve.
