Selling dairy products in open-air markets requires that the products be kept cool, clean, and safe, and also be displayed to the consumer in an appealing way. The farmer will develop a handbook of safe and efficient handling practices, applicable state regulations in the Northeast, and ways of safely displaying and selling cheese and other dairy products in a market setting. The overall goal is to fill a knowledge gap and encourage value-added dairy development. Outreach will be through the handbook which will be marketed through newsletters, other publications, and a Web site.
