The mission of the Georgia Farmers Market Association is to support and promote community based farmers markets in growing local, healthy food systems and to foster pathways to equitable food access. We value equity, opportunity, community, local foods, resources and organizational integrity.
We work with you to determine which level of consulting will be most beneficial to your organization. Then we operate in 3 primary ways:
GFMA will conduct a preliminary and/or post-market analysis of your local food climate by analyzing the following:
• Community engagement
• Funding Opportunities
• Local partnerships
The level of ongoing support varies between markets and can include:
• Ongoing technical assistance to partner markets, as needed
• Support can vary from in-person staffing, to developing marketing tools and scheduled conference calls
•Training opportunities for market staff and vendors
Development encompasses the creation of marketing and outreach opportunities to increase your market's impact:
• Creating outreach opportunities
• Marketing expansion
• Incentive programming
• Educational programming
