Why Advocacy?

AFMA works with organizations that stand for Alaska farmers, community-supported agriculture, food security, and the prosperity of our community, to help ensure a resilient local and statewide economy.

We support local markets because they:

Offer high-quality and fresh products

Bring communities Together

Promote local businesses

Increase our access to nutritious food

Help make connections

Are environmentally friendly

Outreach Materials

As market vendors, the following AFMA branded materials were developed for your use. 

Our Projects

AFMA works hard to promote, support, and advocate for Alaska agriculture. As dedicated agriculture industry members ourselves, we thank and communicate with our state’s leadership in supporting Alaska Farmers Markets. 

Beginning and Young Alaskan Farmer Chapter

We are launching an Alaskan Chapter of the National Young Farmers Coalition, a national nonprofit whose mission is to “…shift power and change policy to equitably resource our new generation of working farmers.” This chapter will serve novice farmers and ranchers in Alaska. 

We are currently collecting data such as contact information, farm types, experience, demographics, and interest in the chapter. Please take our survey and help us commence this project.

Our Partners

Thank you to our wonderful partners who help us support Alaska farmers markets. We couldn’t do our work without your contribution!
