Scales need to be certified

  • Posted: Friday, May 24, 2013 12:58 a.m.

Those who sell produce and other items by weight must have their scales certified each year. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture will be certifying weigh scales on Wednesday, June 5, at the Salisbury Farmers Market from 8:30 until 11 a.m. The market is now located on the corner of South Jackson and West Fisher Streets in downtown Salisbury. Scales need to be NTEP approved to be legal for use in North Carolina to comply with laws dictated by the N.C. Department of Agriculture. Contact Richard Sigmond with NCDA at 919-218-3871 should you have any questions concerning your scales or the certification process.
