Farmers' markets are essential to our regional food system. So are the farmers, food producers and market managers who make them possible. As one of the few direct-to-consumer sales opportunities for small family farmers and food producers, farmers' markets maintain a vital place in Ohio’s healthy economy. OFMN is committed to helping you keep your farmers' market vibrant and profitable.


Annual Market Registration

Did you know that the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) no longer requires farmers' markets to register annually?

This presents two challenges for keeping Ohio's markets vibrant. First, patrons have no easy way to find a farmers' market. And OFMN no longer has a way to coordinate or promote markets across our state.

Don’t worry! We're ready to jump in and offer support. Together, we can work towards better understanding and communicating the impact Ohio's farmers' markets are making each year! But first we need to know who you are.

Please take 5 minutes to fill out our short registration form.

Need Some More Incentive?

Your membership is as important to us as it has always been. That is why this year’s membership will cost $0, with a completed OFMN registration form.
 

That’s right. This year's
OFMN membership will
cost nothing, nada, zilch! 


Now you might be asking yourself, “What are the benefits of membership? Why should my farmers' market be a member? We’re glad you asked!

OFMN members receive the following: 
  • FREE Farmers Market Coalition membership 
  • Discount on OFMN's annual conference registration
  • Discounts on training opportunities 
  • State-wide promotion of your market
  • And much more!

Come on. What are you waiting for?  Register your market with OFMN.
