Behind every successful Farmers' Market is a dedicated market manager.
The primary responsibilities for the Farmers' Market manager are recruiting farmers, promoting and advertising the market, and managing day-to-day operations including space allocation. Some farmers' markets are managed and run by an individual in the community. Some are sponsored by community organizations or non-profits with a hired market manager.
In order to be recognized as a Massachusetts farmers' market, the market must meet the criteria within the MDAR's Farmers' Market Policy.
If you, or an organization you work with, is interested in starting a Farmers' Market in your community, contact our Farmer's Market Program Coordinator.
