The Mohawk Valley Farmers Market Managers Alliance, Inc., formed in April, 2014 with support from Cornell Cooperative Extension offices of Oneida, Herkimer and Madison counties and the Farmers Market Federation of New York. It became incorporated in October, 2014, becoming the first Affiliate Chapter of the Farmers Market Federation of NY in November, 2014. The group’s purpose is to support the development of quality markets in the targeted tri-county area (Herkimer, Oneida and Madison counties) through an affiliation with the Federation. This affiliation will support the achievement of the mission to support and promote the viability of farmers' markets through innovative services, programs and partnerships that maximize the benefits of markets to sellers, buyers and communities. These services, programs and partnerships will be delivered and fostered at a grassroots level through the Chapter.

The Farmers Market Federation of New York is a grassroots, membership organization of farmers’ market managers, market sponsors, farmers and market supporters. Together, we have developed a spectrum of services to increase the number and capacity of farmers’ markets in the state, develop the scope of professionalism in farmers’ market management and improve the ability of markets to serve their farmers, their consumers and their host communities. The Federation office is located at 117 Highbridge Street, Fayetteville, New York.
