RI Farmers Market Manager Guide

Management and Operations | Market Start-up and Development

There are over 50 farmers markets in Rhode Island. That’s one market for every 21,000 people, and more than twice as many markets as 6 years ago. Farm Fresh Rhode Island runs 11 of those markets; others are run by the RI DEM Division of Agriculture, community groups or farmers.

Farm Fresh receives about 1 or 2 requests every week from a different person or group wanting to start a new market! Farm Fresh is not looking to start any new markets at this time. However, we can support your undertaking with the following information, as well as promotional opportunities.

This guide was made possible by a partnership between Farm Fresh RI and the USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program.
