Farmers Market Federation of New York
The Farmers Market Federation of New York works with over 700 farmers markets statewide, as well as government agencies, nonprofits, the local farm community, and consumers across the state.
The Farmers’ Market Federation of New York is a grassroots, membership organization of farmers’ market managers, market sponsors, farmers and market supporters.
Our vision is for building an alliance of farmers markets and market advocates, to help create a network of sustainable markets that offer viable outlets to local farmers, a diversity of fresh local foods to consumers and provides economic and social benefits to the community. As such, we continue to develop and provide resources for market managers, organizers, farmers, vendors, and community members to improve the quality and capacity of farmers markets, and advance the professionalism among farmers market management.
The Federation’s main focus is to enhance the ability of farmers markets to create marketplaces that are profitable for farmers, build experiences around local food, make markets accessible to everyone in their community, and to become a vital piece of their community fabric.
OUR MISSION: The mission of the Farmers Market Federation of NY is to support and promote the viability of farmers markets through innovative services, programs and partnerships that maximize the benefits of markets to sellers, buyers and communities.
