One-On-One Assistance for Market Operators

With a mission to support farmers market operators, FMC seeks to foster leaders, encourage research, and facilitate the sharing of resources within the farmers market field.

Farmers Market Coalition can offer fee-based consulting services for farmers markets, their partners, and organizations seeking to understand and support them.  Our network of advisers and assistance providers, drawn from the field of market organizers, professional consultants, and academic leaders, work at three scales:

  • Offering direct assistance to market managers and vendors as they work to make their markets sustainable institutions within their communities
  • Partnering with organizations to perform evaluations and analysis on local, regional, and national farmers market impacts
  • Communicating research and promising practices through presentations and workshops at conferences across the country

By interacting at all levels of farmers market execution,  FMC strengthens local markets, ensuring that their values, successes, and challenges are documented, analyzed, and communicated, and understood by the spectrum of local, state, and national stakeholders.

Resource Development

FMC uses our network of experienced market professionals and academic partners to find or create necessary worksheets, templates or case studies. Existing resources can be found throughout this site and through our Resource Library. If you would like to suggest a resource to include from your own or another organization, or if you have a suggestion for a resource that FMC should help to create, please let us know by filling out this form.
