Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Fulton Montgomery Farmers’ Market Association (FMFMA). Becoming a member of the Association is the first step in becoming a vendor at our farmers markets in Amsterdam, Caroga Lake, Gloversville, or Johnstown. The annual membership fee to join the Association is $50.00. This allows the Board of Directors and Market Manager to promote the Associations’ markets to both consumers and potential vendors and cover operating costs.
At this time, the Association is accepting applications from all farmers, as well as bakers and crafters located in the following counties as members and as vendors at our markets: Montgomery, Fulton, Saratoga, Hamilton, Herkimer, Schoharie, Schenectady, and Otsego. Any applicants outside the above listed counties may be accepted at the boards’ discretion. Please note that to be a vendor at our markets, one hundred (100) percent of the products offered for sale must be produced by the seller on lands or in production facilities they own or operate.
Fulton and Montgomery counties have a resident population of over 103,000 and they are a summer and winter tourism hub, with an associated tourist boost during the Farmers Market months. Our markets generally run from May through October. The association advertises the various markets in local newspapers, radio stations, through flyers and hand-outs, through this website, and also through social media, assuring us of a steady stream of potential customers on market days.
Our application process is easily done online at www.managemymarket.com. Fill out a profile and click "apply to a market." Any questions, please contact Stephanie Gray, Board President at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-568-5764.
