In 2020, FMC piloted an annual report to highlight farmers market adaptations and trends in the era of COVID-19. These types of reports can be used to demonstrate a market’s flexibility and highlight its successes stemming from market innovations or other changes implemented by an organization in response to COVID to funders and other stakeholders.
This infographic-style report is modeled after the reporting design embedded in our Farmers Market Metrics software. Learn more about our Metrics program here.
The markets featured in this pilot include Metuchen Farmers Market in Metuchen, NJ, Columbia Farmers Market in Columbia, MO, and The Market at Pepper Place in Birmingham, AL. Please click on the images below to download**:
