    Lisa describes the partnership between Extension and the OK Small Business Development Center, and then she discusses the food borne illness program she developed for farmers market sellers, though it can easily be adapted for other audiences like OHCE groups and 4-H clubs. The food borne illness presentation covers the following topics. Why farmers markets are popular. The incidence of foodborne illness in the United States, and how farmers have been held accountable in past cases. Common points of contamination on a farm. Best practices for production, handling and workers. Best practices at the market for sanitization, handwashing and sampling.
