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

With National Farmers Market Week fast approaching, the FMC Communications team guides you through the new toolkit and provides tips on how to prepare for this exciting annual celebration of all things farmers markets!
National Farmers Market Week is coming up and it is a fantastic opportunity for farmers markets to engage with elected officials and other policymakers in their local communities!
To make sure you have all the information you need to work with the materials, FMC’s Executive Director, Ben Feldman, walks us through our Advocacy Toolkit in this webinar recording. Farmers markets and other food organizations can serve as powerful agents of change in their communities and making your needs known through engagement with policymakers is essential.
Connecting with your customers is an essential part of selling at farmers markets. Social media – especially short-form videos — can help you do that. In this webinar, VAFMA and VSU host Shannon Loy of The Social Ginger to share the ins and outs of using videos to connect with customers.
