I would like to start a farmers’ market in my area...how do I get started? Starting a market is a significant undertaking. We have a manual available through MFMA that provides a great deal of information on every aspect of running a farmers’ market - and it's free as a download!
I would like to have a booth at a market, how do I get a space? The MFMA does not run any of the member markets. All of our markets are their own entities and have their own market managers and application process. Please contact the market you are interested in directly. You will find contact information for each market on our home page map.
I would like to get opinions from other market staff regarding a question or issue that I have; how do I reach them? This is a great topic for MFMA's Facebook group Minnesota Farmers' Market Operators. Once added you can send your question and connect with other market supporters.
I need to get insurance for my market or to participate at my market; who has affordable farmers’ market or vendor insurance? MFMA has a low cost general liability and product liability insurance program available for MFMA member markets, and for the vendors belonging to those markets. See our Insurance page for full details.
MFMA provides services, programs, and leadership that support and promote farmers' markets across Minnesota.
