FAQFarmer Market Frequently Asked Questions

Farmers markets are fast becoming America’s favorite way to access fresh, locally grown foods and develop relationships with farmers. This has resulted in tremendous growth in farmers markets over the last few years. This growth has spurred greater interest in operating, supporting and participating in farmers markets.

The Farmers Market Federation of NY, in an effort to answers the questions of market operators, market supporters, market enthusiasts, farmers and vendors, as well as news reporters, has developed a series of responses to those questions we are most commonly asked.
