The goal of the Illinois Farmers Market Task Force, which was created by PA 97-0394 (SB 1852), is to address the regulatory framework that governs food safety at farmers’ markets.   Inconsistent regulations that are not based on size or risk have been cited as barriers to expanding local food production and sales in Illinois.
