Asked April 6, 2015, 8:03 PM EDT

I'm looking for economic benchmarks and other data for projections and assumptions to assemble a business plan for a start up farm market. Can anyone help me out?

Hi -

There is a great project, here:

I have personally done work with farmers markets across the country and have these factsheets posted from the National Farmers Market Coalition:

Please let us know if you have other questions.

Thanks! - Eric
