Resource Library

Welcome to the Farmers Market Coalition Resource Library, an ever-growing database of resources for farmers market operators, organizations that support farmers markets, and  researchers. These resources were developed by a wide spectrum of organizations, agencies, and academic institutions, and we are grateful for the spirit of sharing which allows us to bring a variety of tools to your table in one searchable portal. We hope you find them useful and consider submitting resources of your own for the benefit of the farmers market community.

In addition to this resource library, FMC curates The Farm Direct Nutrition Incentives Guide Site, a comprehensive library of resources for the people who run SNAP/EBT and nutrition incentives at farmers markets, farm stands, CSAs and mobile markets. If you are looking for information related to SNAP and nutrition incentives, you’ll find some resources here, and many more at the Farm Direct Nutrition Incentive Library. Learn more and explore the site at farmdirectincentives.guide

Glossary of Farmers Market Terms

This glossary was developed by John Porter, Urban Agriculture Program Coordinator for Nebraska Extension for use by Oregon Farmers Markets Association and other farmers market organizations. This is a reference for farmers market managers, vendors, volunteers, board members and customers, but should not be considered a legal or academic document.

Check out the recording of John’s webinar, Organics, Hybrids and GMOs — Oh My!, for a fun and more in depth discussion of these terms and how to use them.
