USDA: Mini vegetable classes boosts sales at farmers' markets
from Growing Produce
USDA had such great success with vegetable classes at its go-to test market (the farmers market on the National Mall), it’s launching the program across the country. Dubbed VegU, the classes teach shoppers how to grow, pick, and prepare that week’s featured fruit or vegetable. To get a feel for how the classes work, you can browse USDA’s VegU site for an extensive list of linked class videos and podcasts.
