An Act To Amend the Definition of "Farmers' Market"

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 7 MRSA §415, sub-§1, ¶A,  as enacted by PL 1993, c. 138, §1, is amended to read:

A. "Farmers' market" means a building, structure or place used by 2 or more farmers for the direct sale of farm and food products to consumers, at which all at least 75% of the sellers meet the requirements of subsection 2, paragraph B.


Current law requires that at least 75% of products offered for sale by each seller at a farmers' market must be grown or processed by that seller. This bill changes the definition of "farmers' market" to require that only 75% of the sellers at a farmers' market must meet this requirement.
