About Hoosier Farmers Market Association

Hoosier Farmers Market Association (HFMA)  is an education nonprofit serving Indiana farmers’  markets and their managers,  boards,  artisans,  farmers and shoppers.  The association collaborates with nonprofits,  businesses and government agencies to strengthen the farmers market network in Indiana through direct marketing via temporary place-making.

Our Mission

Strengthen the local food system,  increase fresh food access,  foster economic development and encourage thriving communities through direct marketing relationships at Indiana farmers’  markets.

Our Vision

Indiana will have a vibrant local food system in which all Hoosiers have knowledge of their area farmers and artisans,  and public access to their community’s farmers market.


HFMA offers 2-3 graduate or career transition apprenticeships (stipend)  each term.  We also offer 1 undergraduate intership and 1 graduate capstone or group project (for course credit/integration)  per term.  Individuals interested in volunteering can contribute to activities located at our downtown office or with our special events hosted throughout Indiana.  Additionally,  June-November,  we offer small and large group volunteer opportunties to include gleaning at the farms of our member organizations,  or assisting with our gleaning partners at either markets or pantries.  Contact us directly for more information.
