Potential farmers market sellers and customers got some tips on safety and producing Wednesday as the market season draws closer across the region.

Dr. Courtney Crist, assistant extension professor with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, provided updates and tips on the ‘cottage food’ industry for producers who grow their own or make their own sauces and jellies for sale.

The West Point Farmers Market once again will be held at the Mossy Oak Outlet Mall starting at 5 p.m. each Thursday. Opening day is May 23.
