New York Opens Application Process for Marijuana Farmers Markets

Just two days after New York officials voted to allow marijuana farmers markets, the state has opened up the application process.

On Wednesday the state Cannabis Control Board (CCB) passed a handful of new rules including legalizing marijuana farmers markets. These are referred to as “Cannabis Growers Showcases” where growers and retailers can “bring their product to market and allow licensees to sell such products simultaneously.” Today, the application process opened for businesses wanting to take part in the new rules.

“The Cannabis Growers Showcase (CGS) initiative allows licensed cannabis growers and processors to showcase New York cannabis products to consumers at events where consumers can purchase those cannabis products from licensed retailers”, states the Office of Cannabis Policy’s website. “Licensed Adult-Use Conditional Cultivators (AUCC), Adult-Use Conditional Processors (AUCP), and Conditional Adult-Use Retail Dispensary (CAURD) who have been approved for licensed activities by the Office of Cannabis Management can participate in a CGS.”

The Office says that “A CGS can take place in various locations, including standalone, temporary retail locations; licensed retail dispensary locations; licensed conditional cultivator or processor locations; or other approved event locations. Please note, temporary delivery only locations are not authorized to host a CGS.”
