About the VFMA


What is a farmersí market?
The Victorian Farmersí Markets Association (VFMA) defines an authentic farmersí market as ďa predominantly local fresh food and produce market that operates regularly at a public location which provides a suitable environment for farmers and food producers to sell their farm origin product and their associated value added primary products directly to customers.Ē

What are the fundamentals of an authentic Victorian farmersí market?
- An opportunity for farmersí to transact directly with their customers and take credit for their efforts
- A regional and/or state boundary which ensures the produce is locally grown
- No re-sellers, distributors, agents or wholesalers permitted
- No art, craft or bric-a-brac

Why is authenticity so important?
When the public shop at a farmersí market anywhere in Victoria, they should be able to trust that the person who they are transacting with is the person who grew or made the produce.

A VFMA accreditation program will be introduced in 2009 for authentic farmers, producers and farmersí markets. This consistent level of compliance forms a solid basis of quality, integrity and fairness for accredited farmersí markets to be identified recognised by.

How will accredited farmersí markets be recognised?
Currently all farmersí markets in Victoria are self regulating and most are consistent with the VFMA guidelines for accreditation.

Once established, the VFMA logo will be the identifying brand for an accredited VFMA member and its use will be strictly dependent on passing a thorough initial audit followed by annual review and random inspections.
