Welcome to the Farmers Market Coalition Resource Library, an ever-growing database of resources for farmers, market managers 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.

To help promote farmers markets across the state, the Washington State University Farmers Market Action Team and Washington State Farmers Market Association (WSFMA) have teamed up to create a series of new farmers market graphics.
Each graphic taps into a key feature of farmers markets: freshness, directness, and deep and intertwined roots in community.
The goal of this project is so increase the sales of specialty crops at farmers markets through the use of visually appealing, targeted messages that will inspire core shoppers to talk about the benefits of farmers market experience with their peers, friends and family members.
You can help us get these conversations going by incorporating one or more of the graphics into your communications channels. Please feel free to use them however you like – post them online or add to your print promotions, newsletters, event materials, and more. Unleash your creativity! Funding was generously provided by the WSDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.
The “Find it at the Farmers Market” (PDF) provides a short overview of the project, the strategy and more ideas on how to use the graphics.
The graphics are available in print quality PDFs and JPGs. They have them in English and Spanish, with and without the background color. They may take a few minutes to load.
