2020 National Farmers' Market Week Photo Competition

Welcome to our 2nd Annual Photo Competition in honor of National Farmers' Market Week. This competition is sponsored by MFMA, Minnesota Grown, and Minnesota Farmers' Union. The competition is open to all Minnesota Farmers' Market lovers - customers, vendors, market staff, volunteers, you name it! To enter:

  • Take a photo at any farmers' market in Minnesota and post it to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #mymnmarket2020 or email photos to MFMA Communications Director Kim Guenther.
  • Deadline for submission is midnight on Saturday, August 1st, 2020. 
  • You do not need to be a Minnesota resident to submit, but photos do need to be taken at a Minnesota Farmers' Market

Photos do not need to be taken during any certain time or of any certain item. Photos can be of people, produce, or anything else from a market. Let's see your creativity! Photos will be judged by MFMA, Minnesota Grown, and Minnesota Farmers Union and may be used for promotional purposes.

  • $150 for 1st place
  • $125 for 2nd place

What's new for MFMA's 2020 Insurance Program for Market Vendors and Farmers' Markets? 

The 2020 MFMA Insurance Program is ready to rock and roll!

Good news - our underwriters didn't raise premiums - so prices will remain the same as they have been since 2016. Great job everyone on being safe and keeping our premiums low!

New for 2020 is coverage for Wisconsin too! MFMA Vendor Insurance now covers sales at all Minnesota AND Wisconsin farmers' markets at the same low price.

Click here to renew or sign up. Remember, if you SELL at a market, you want VENDOR insurance. If you MANAGE a farmers' market, you want MARKET insurance.
