New Mexico Farmers Marketing Association

The New Mexico Farmers’ Marketing Association is dedicated to strengthening the local food system by supporting New Mexico agriculture producers and cultivating strong networks for a healthier New Mexico.

Funding supports general operations to carry forward their values-based local food procurement work that trains and connects farmers, ranchers, and food producers with three state agencies and the New Mexico Association of Food Banks. Funds are used to grow the number of producers—including members of the Navajo Nation and Spanish speakers—who participate in the Approved Supplier Program through staffing support and culturally relevant farmer training and outreach including the development of a producer resource toolkit and strategic communications such as video storytelling.
