Who We Are
INWFMA | Building Community. Together.
The Inland Northwest Farmers Market Association (INWFMA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering and promoting farmers markets throughout the Inland Northwest. We exist to directly connect farmers markets and their fresh food to nearby families without middlemen. Supporting the nutritional, economic, and social health of our region, we are improving the odds of a brighter tomorrow for farmers, local food processors while and the sustainability of our food system for generations to come.
What We Do
Established in 2017, INWFMA is a collective of neighborhood farmers’ markets serving the Greater Spokane Area. While we celebrate each market’s unique placement and contribution to Spokane’s community, we also recognize that we are stronger together by optimizing the processes which we all duplicate independently.
During the fall of 2016, we saw the value in coming together as a group to share our best practices, magnify impact, and identify ways to reduce unnecessary duplication. We relieve market manager burnout where possible, by identifying sources of volunteer and work-study labor. This was the impetus for INWFMA’s inception: to create a cohesive backbone for the areas farmers markets that allows us to share administrative resources, supplies, and programs, while focusing our individual efforts on tackling issues within our respective neighborhoods.
Centering our organization on similar and successful models built across the nation, we are stronger together and leaving a lasting impact in our region. We bring people together – connecting families, artisans, musicians, and farmers alike – all while surrounding them with programs that build life-long skills and health habits, encourage fresh food access, and build community.
How You Can Make a Difference
