AFMA Membership

AFMA is a non-profit membership organization. In order to qualify for membership, a member shall be a Farmers Market, defined as a venue that is available for a gathering of vendors of local food, whose director publishes regular business hours and is actively seeking farm vendors.  A member may also be elected or appointed to membership by the Board. 

Annual Membership Dues: $25

Criteria for joining AFMA:

In order to qualify for membership, a member shall be a Farmers Market (“Market”), defined as a venue that is available for a gathering of vendors of local food, whose director publishes regular business hours and is actively seeking farm vendors.  A member may also be elected or appointed to membership by the Board. 

Member representatives:

Each Market shall have one member representative who is entitled to vote on behalf of the member.  There shall be only one member representative for each Market, including those persons who serve on the Board.  Persons on the Board who are affiliated with a Market must serve as that Market’s member representative.  If a Market is controlled by a board of directors rather than a single owner, that Market should send a resolution of the board naming their single authorized member representative.

Voting rights:

With respect to the subject matter of an issue submitted to the members, each member shall be entitled to one vote upon each such issue.  If a manager runs more than one Market, each individual Market shall qualify for a vote rather than each management entity.  If a Market has more than one location, each individual location shall qualify as a “Market” and shall have one vote, if all other qualifications for membership are met by that individual location.
