Farmers' Market goodies The FDA is accepting comments on its proposed regulations of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) until November 15th. If you're a farmer, a processor, or want to remain an informed consumer, please attend our information session, led by Mass Farm Bureau Federation President, Rich Bonanno. The session will cover the proposed regulations under the Produce Rule and the Preventive Controls Rule. 
SEMAP encourages our region's farmers, processors, and eaters to learn about the issues surrounding each rule, and to comment thoughtfully.
