DOVER, Del.- Delaware farm stand owners are invited to a free marketing workshop next month to learn how to reach more customers and improve profits.

"Using the latest marketing techniques can make a real difference for farmers' profitability," said Delaware Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee. "Our farmers are working hard every day to grow the freshest produce and agricultural products for Delaware consumers, and we want to support them in those efforts."

The Department of Agriculture's "Secrets of a Successful Season" workshops - set for April 2 in Dover and April 9 in Georgetown - will feature expert advice on creating farm stand displays, event planning and roadside traffic safety. Attendees will also bring home free promotional materials to boost their markets' reach, including a carousel display.

Attendees can pick one of two workshop dates: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 2 at the DDA Administration Building, 2320 South DuPont Highway, Camden, or 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 9 at the Carvel Research & Education Center, 16483 County Seat Highway, Georgetown.

The registration deadline is March 26. To register, email celene.walton@state.de.us or call (302) 698-4535.
