Farmers Market Mission Statement

The purpose of the Johnson County Farmers Market is to strengthen a Sustainable Local Agriculture and Food Economy. We accomplish this by providing education, engaging in community and economic development, and promoting the availability and benefits of local agriculture and serving and preparing local foods.

The JCFM is a nonprofit schedule(3)c entity and relies on community donations and grants to operate. Become a “Market Friend” and help grow our market. We also rely on volunteers to help with market operations.
