What We Do

MIFMA places equity at the forefront of supporting the viability of community-driven marketplaces so that they can connect ALL consumers to local farms and businesses. 

MIFMA was established in 2006 as a statewide association to promote local food consumption in Michigan by connecting more farmers to consumers through farmers markets. The number of farmers markets in Michigan has grown from around 90 in 2001 to nearly 300 in 2023. This growth makes our work more important than ever.

Interesting Info
  • There are 300 farmers markets throughout the state of Michigan
  • 9 out of 10 Michiganders live in a county with at least one farmers market.
  • Michigan is the second most agriculturally diverse state in the nation
