The rules that apply to accredited producers and markets are available in the documents below. Potential applicants should read the requirements for accreditation before considering applying for membership.
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. As an accredited market, you must understand, apply and support our rules.
Members of the public are welcome to apply for VFMA membership as industry stakeholders. This class of membership is generally used by people who work at our farmers' markets but aren't producers. Long-time supporters of the VFMA also use this class of membership to stay in touch with member-only news and events.
