We develop, support and lead an inclusive network of accredited farmers, makers and farmers’ markets contributing to thriving, sustainable communities and our food security.
We accredit farmers, makers and markets so shoppers can be sure the foods and products they buy are made by the stallholders in our markets. In this way, shoppers learn more about where their food comes from and, when they buy, help to strengthen farm and local communities.
Our core challenge
We want to help young people find paths to farming and markets for their produce, and support our farmer, maker and market members with effective training, marketing and communication tools to build capacity and engage in their communities for the greater good.
We’re open, responsive, accountable and transparent in all our member, market and community relationships. We’re working hard to equip our farmers, makers and markets with tools and advice to respond to climate change, build inclusion, and improve digital access.
