VFMA Accredited Farmers’ Markets are the key to Victoria’s thriving community of genuine farmers’ markets and we welcome your interest in joining them. Increasingly the public is becoming more conscious of its food choices and looks to VFMA accreditation as a signal that a market’s stallholders can be relied upon to be selling their own locally grown or made product.
Accreditation should not be applied for lightly. We encourage you to understand our rules and the commitments we expect. Once a market is accredited, the public have the right to expect that our standards are adhered to, and the VFMA has the obligation to enforce them. In granting accreditation we are entrusting you with our reputation. Please be aware that we may need to ask you for additional information. You should allow a minimum of 6 weeks for your application to be processed.
