We are farmers markets, on-farm markets, market managers, farmers, and consumers.

Mission

The mission of the WVFMA is to provide resources and support connections that enhance the economic growth and sustainability of West Virginia farmers markets.

Activities
We aim to strengthen viability of farmers markets across the state through our activities, such as meetings, surveys, trainings, development of resources and policy work. Cooperation is fostered among members in solving problems related to the production and marketing of farm products and improvement in marketing activities.  The Association is a membership-based organization supported in part by both membership fees and grant dollars. 

Benefits to Our Members

Member markets receive our monthly newsletter, get discounts for training opportunities and conferences sponsored by the WVFMA, access to grant opportunities, have access to staff and board members for advice and information, have voting privileges in electing WVFMA board members and a voice in farmers market policy in West Virginia!
