(b) Meet the grower selection criteria in subsection (2) of this section;
(c) Complete training on FMNP requirements provided by either an authorized farmers' market manager or the department; and
(d) Receive a contract from the department signed by both the department and the applicant.
(2) Grower selection criteria. The applicant must:
(a) Grow a portion of the produce they have for sale;
(b) Sell locally grown produce at either the authorized farmers' market or the authorized farm store, or both as identified on the completed application; and
(c) Agree to follow the terms and conditions of the grower contract.
