OHIO’s Voinovich School assists Athens Farmers Market, seeks input from community

August 5, 2013

ATHENS, Ohio (Aug. 5, 2013) – Ohio University's Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs is assisting the Athens Farmers Market and the City of Athens with a study to identify what customers value about the market.

A project team from the Voinovich School will be at the market on Saturday, Aug. 10, and Wednesday, Aug. 14, to talk with customers about their experiences at the market, what they buy and why they choose to shop there. The information will assist in future decision making for the Athens Farmers Market.

The Athens Farmers Market urges shoppers to take a few short minutes to stop by the AFM tent and voice what the market means to them. By completing a short questionnaire, customers will have the opportunity to be placed in a drawing for a $50 Athens Farmers Market gift certificate.
