Washington State Farmers Market Association together with its local members supports and promotes vibrant and sustainable farmers markets in Washington State. Our vision is to have a thriving and sustainable farmers market within reach of every resident in Washington State. Washingtonians understand the importance of farmers markets in developing healthy communities and a sustainable local food system. WSFMA is a national leader in the movement to increase access to local foods through farmers markets.
