Join the Federation: Become a Member Today!


It’s that time again!

We are trying something a little different with membership this year: We’ve added an online payment option through our website. This gives you the opportunity to renew your membership instantly—And save on postage! Follow the link below to renew your market membership for 2017:

If you’d prefer to renew by mail, click here for a downloadable PDF that you can mail to our office.

We also encourage you to add or update your market information on our website. Please go to http://www.nyfarmersmarket.com/add-your- market/. If you already have a listing, click here to search for existing entries, please follow the instructions to edit your listing. This site is used by consumers, farmers and potential market sponsors. Keeping your information accurate and up-to-date is important.

The Federation had a busy and exciting 2016. Not only did we have our first graduates from our new Professional Managers Certification Program (FMMPro), but we also had the opportunity to partner with other states who were interested in offering FMMPro to their market managers.

It was also the first year that we used dollars directly from membership payments to fund a scholarship program for our annual conference. This is a great example of how your annual support directly supports members of the farmers market community!

And there’s more!

For additional information on what we accomplished in 2016, please check out our Annual Report.

Your support of the Federation allows us to focus on empowering farmers, growing markets, and strengthening communities. We thank you in advance for your continued support and look forward to working with you in 2017!

As always, feel free to contact Executive Director, Diane Eggert ([email protected]) or Co-Presidents, Laura Biasillo ([email protected]) and Melinda Meddaugh ([email protected]) if you have any questions or suggestions.
