The New Mexico Farmers’ Marketing Association is devoted to supporting farming and locally produced foods in every New Mexico community.

Bring the Harvest Home

Farmers

Who grows the food in your community? We believe farmers should be able to stay on their land, keep water and seeds in production, and preserve agricultural knowledge. Meet some of our state’s best growers, ranchers and food producers at your local farmers’ market, and find out what’s in season for your home-cooked meals.

Families

Who enjoys fresh, healthy food in your community? We believe every New Mexico family deserves access to fresh food. That’s why a variety of NMFMA programs are dedicated to ensuring children, seniors, and the underserved have access to fresh food available at their local farmers’ markets, along with supporting education.

Community

What makes your community flourish? We believe that supporting local growers, ranchers and food producers preserves cultural identity and traditions, along with creating valuable community gathering places. Supporting local food producers also keeps important food dollars circulating in our hometowns where it is needed most.
