Here’s where we come in. The Michigan Farmers Market Association provides the training, resources, technical assistance, and comradery needed to make sure our state has the farmers markets in place to serve not only our farmers but the consumers who are seeking healthy, local food options.
Every year we help certify dozens of professionally-trained market managers, execute numerous training programs, and provide hundreds of hours of technical assistance. We provide the technical “know how” to ensure that our farmers markets remain strong and viable to meet the needs of farmers, vendors, and the communities they serve. We also provide a voice in Lansing and Washington D.C. to advocate for farmers, farmers markets, and shoppers.
You can help, too! It’s a BIG job. We have a large state with a growing network of farmers markets; each of which has its distinct needs and challenges. Your support for our work ensures we have the resources in place to support farmers, local vendors, farmers markets, and communities across the state who are seeking to build a place where people can meet together and enjoy healthy, local food.
