Farmers, producers and makers who work to supply our markets, inspire us to help the next generation find paths to farming and markets, and build our network.


Years of passionate VFMA work, every day, to champion, promote and advocate the real value of real farmers in our markets and the shoppers who support them.


Contributions, partnerships and collaborations that weekly and monthly add heart to our markets in churchyards, schoolyards, parks and reserves in communities near you.

Membership for Markets

VFMA Accredited Farmers’ Markets are the key to Victoria’s thriving community of genuine farmers’ markets and we welcome your interest in joining them. Increasingly the public is becoming more conscious of its food choices and looks to VFMA accreditation as a signal that a market’s stallholders can be relied upon to be selling their own locally grown or made product. As an accredited market, you must understand, apply and support our rules.

Membership for Producers

Farmers' market stallholders enjoy a direct connection with their customers, benefiting from retail returns and customer feedback on their products. As a producer, we encourage you to ensure that you will be able to meet the criteria for accreditation before you apply for membership.  When you sign up as a VFMA member, you join a community that has agreed to core principles of authenticity in local food systems.

Membership for Industry Stakeholders

Members of the public are welcome to apply for VFMA membership as industry stakeholders.  This class of membership is generally used by people who work at our farmers' markets but aren't producers.  Long-time supporters of the VFMA also use this class of membership to stay in touch with member-only news and events.
