Farmers, along with shoppers, are the foundation of the farmers market system. They are those that work the land, nurture the crops, and harvest for the food that makes it to market and ultimately on the plate.
The Maryland Farmers Market Association (MDFMA) is dedicated to supporting farmers in all the aspects of participating in a farmers market - from finding the right fit to maximizing sales, to marketing and promotions, to accepting all forms of payment from all types of customers.Become a Member
