The first section is your Vendor Information. This covers where markets and customers can find out more about your business, where to follow you on social media, and if you participate in the SNAP EBT program.

The next section covers your best practices and certifications. There are 2 sections for best practices. The first allows you to associate industry standard tags, and the second is a free-form text field giving you the ability to further elaborate on your best practices. You can also let customers know if you are certified organic or part of the American Grassfed Association.

Note: Being Certified USDA Organic requires that you also state the name you registered with the USDA when receiving that certification.

Next, if you have a colleague that manages the business, which could include the same person who is physically at your booths during market hours, that information can be filled in below.

Finally, the contact information section, this allows you to display your preferred contact information. By default, Farmspread does not publish your telephone number, if you wish to have that displayed publicly on your profile you may choose to enable that here.

Keep in mind that any changes made are immediately available in your public profile for markets and customers to see.
