The past few weeks we’ve been trying to provide some background information regarding the rules and regulations at farmers markets. The main point we wanted to make is to contact your local market to make sure you are following their rules. Not just regarding the scales but everything else as well. Here is another example of rules regarding scales at the market.
Weights and Measures: All vendors must comply with the North Carolina Statutes governing the weight and measurement of produce and other items sold. All scales must be approved as â€œLegal For Tradeâ€. Anyone using scales must have them certified by the NCDA. For certification of a scale, contact the NCDA Standards Division.
