Each market is a unique expression of its local producers and community. However, many of the issues that market managers face are universal. FMC provides a network of support, where ideas and issues are discussed, and best practices shared.
FMC represents thousands of markets and maintains a few extremely active listservs. The listservs facilitate peer-to-peer exchange of market management best practices, funding opportunities, and regulatory changes. FMC also works closely with state and regional leaders to build the capacity of state farmers market associations.
The drop-down menu under Networking leads to many pages with opportunities to connect to peers or support.
