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.

Record rainfall, flooding and wind damage are punishing farmers across the Midwest, with fields and livestock under standing water. For some family farmers and ranchers already teetering on the edge from low prices and an ongoing trade war, this latest disaster is the last thing they need.
If you’ve been impacted by this recent disaster, there are a number of national and state assistance programs that can provide support. Please look through the list of resources, expertly curated by the National Farmers Union, whose Farm Crisis Center is a good starting point.
Please also take a look at our Resource Guide for Disaster Assistance (also available as a printable PDF), which covers everything from who to contact, to what to document if you’ve been impacted by a disaster.
This tool, created by the MPH@GW program, makes it easy to understand, and teach others about, individual-level impact on climate change. The guide provides effective ways to reduce your carbon footprint by filtering how much time, money, and effort a person chooses to invest.
This report summarizes the results of two surveys conducted in early 2018 that collected information on the 2017 summer market season.
