One of the Village Farmers Market Association's goals is to foster a locally based food system. One way V.F.M.A. is committed to accomplishing this is by providing a conduit between local farmers and consumers. This will be done at V.F.M.A. sponsored California State Certified Farmers' Markets. This farm to consumer connection is in lieu of conducting business through numerous middle men which each inevitably take a portion of the farmer's profit. This Enables local farmers and all connected with the system to make livable wages and ensure the sustainability of local and responsible farms.

Because V.F.M.A. is a nonprofit corporation that is 100% volunteer run, V.F.M.A. is able maintain low vendor fees ensuring our above goals are easily sustainable. ALL vendor fees go directly into supporting the market, or to supporting one of VFMA's community outreach programs.

V.F.M.A. is committed to keeping all sponsored markets in-line with a vision of what V.F.M.A. feels a farmers' market is meant to be.

Benefits of Visiting
Your Farmers' Market

  • Fruits and vegetables have usually all been harvested within the last day or so

  • Significantly decreases the amount of fossil fuels used to transport the food you eat

  • You can actually talk with the people who produced your food

  • Promotes responsible, sustainable farming in your community

  • Farmers’ Markets are great community builders

  • Discover new varieties of fruits and vegetables

  • Farmers’ Markets put more money in the farmers’ pockets. Commercial farmers get only twenty-five cents of every dollar’s worth of produce sold in supermarkets. At the Farmers’ market, they get the whole dollar.

  • When produce is grown and purchased locally, the money remains in the community and stimulates the local economy.
