For Market Managers

Market managers are the backbone of any farmers markets together - they are the champions, the devoted advocates, and the hard working people that make a market thrive. Check out MDFMA's tools to help managers do get the job done.

We strive to support market managers, the unsung – and often underpaid – heroes of farmers markets by offering them soup-to-nuts support so that they can best manage and promote their farmers markets.

Farmers Market Vendor Agreement Legal Guide

Although farmers markets vary in structure, all have rules and procedures vendors must follow. These are typically found in a market’s vendor agreement, which is a legally binding contract between the vendor and the market. MDFMA partnered with the University of Maryland Agriculture Law Education Initiative to a Model Vendor Agreement that provides basic legal considerations and examples of sample language for market managers to consider and modify for individual use.
