Why are memberships important?

Amazing question! Memberships are one of the main ways in which VFM gets support. Membership sales help us support our 9 annual farmers markets, subsidizes stall fees for farmers and provides funding for the Fresh to Families Program. Moreover, it allows us to keep pursuing our mission to create vibrant and welcoming markets that build community, feed people, and support small farms and producers.

Need more cool reasons to buy a membership? I’ve got you covered⬇️

  1. Your purchase directly goes towards supporting our mission – to create vibrant and welcoming markets that build community, feed people, and support small farms and producers.
  2. You get access to exclusive vendor discounts
  3. You are driving the demand for local, fresh, and healthy produce, creating lasting impact in your community
  4. You are fostering relationships with local businesses and directly support them to succeed
  5. You are investing in a resilient food system, independent from external uncertainties that benefits us all.

As you see, our work is not easy, but we do it with passion and drive, and you help us to keep doing exactly that! Thank you for your support, always.
