The Vermont Direct Market Pricing Project is an initiative of UVM Extension, in partnership with: the Vermont Vegetable and Berry Growers Association; the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT); and the Vermont Farmers’ Market Association. The goals of the Direct Market Pricing Project are to help farmers share information about what they charge at direct markets (farmstands, farmers’ markets, etc) for farm products and to provide education about farm pricing strategies.  With this information farmers can set prices that are fair to consumers while supporting farm profitability. Through the online Direct Market Price Report, online information and resources, and in-person workshops and clinics, the Project aims to support long-term farm viability.

Funding for this project was provided by the  Northeast Center for Risk Management Education, the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, with Additional support provided by High Mowing Organic Seeds.
