Feb 2-4! Semiahmoo Resort  BlaineSemiahmoo Panorama Crop

Thanks to all the farmers, market managers, agriculture policymakers, and community members who joined us for our 2017 WSFMA Conference. In all we brought together over 200 farmers market organizers, farmers, state agencies and partner organizations to share their passion for Washington farms, food access, and farmers markets at the amazing waterfront Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA

  • Networking with market managers and farmers!
  • Trade show with industry experts and exhibitors!
  • Movies, Wine and Beer Tasting, and More!
  • Keynote by Erin Buckwalter: Partnerships for Farm and Market Tourism
  • Specialty Crop Farmer Scholarships!
  • Manager and Market Supporter Scholarships!

It’s also our last one for two years. That’s right, the WSFMA conference is now biennial, meaning every other year- the next full-sized conference won’t take place until 2019. We will host market organizer intensives in 2018, so the 2017 will be your last chance to get together with ALL of your favorite colleagues, cohorts, and collaborators for 2 years! Save the date and make plans to come to Blaine.
