The 2023 Maine Farmers’ Market Convention brings together market farmers, organizers, and community members across the state in a golden opportunity for education, resource-sharing, and networking. The convention offers resources and information from service providers, legal experts, and seasoned farmers focusing on the most important topics to our farmers’ market community.

We’re aiming for a half-day convention to take place in the afternoon. Be sure to check out the Maine Agricultural Trades Show for the first half of the day!
