The Agricultural Marketing Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) maintains a current listing of farmers markets throughout the United States.  CLICK HERE to search their database.

The Small Farm Program, a part of the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, “focuses on the challenges and opportunities of California’s small-scale farm operators.”  Its Small Farm Center offers several publications related to farmers markets, written for market managers and farmers.

The Farmers Market Coalition [http://farmersmarketcoalition.org] maintains a Resource Library for farmers, managers of farmers market, market researchers, and organizations which sponsor or are looking to start farmers markets.  The Coalition’s database of resources “were developed by a wide spectrum of organizations, agencies and academic institutions” and it recognizes “the spirit of sharing” which allows it to make the resources available in one searchable portal.
