We exist to serve you – the farmers, market workers, and communities that make farmers markets thrive throughout Georgia. Six years ago, farmer and respected Georgia agriculture advocate Brennan Washington and community leaders believed that there was a need for increased support for sustainable agriculture and food access in Georgia. He and the community leaders had a vision for an organization that would strengthen the farmers market infrastructure by shaping public policy, offering statewide representation, increasing whole food access and providing training and educational opportunities.
In this way, the farmer’s market infrastructure would be strengthened to enable markets to thrive, grow, and multiply. The addition of Sagdrina Jalal of Project Generation Gap saw the dream become a reality.
That vision became the Georgia Farmers Market Association, now a robust organization with Board representation from all constituencies and regions within the state.
