Through many years of research, we have established a simple, effective way to reduce deception at markets and protect farmers from unfair practices by wholesalers and resellers. We inspect each participating farm to ensure the basic information provided by the farmer is accurate and true. We ask for a simple, handwritten crop plan and work closely with the farmer at the market to ensure the produce gets sold.
CAFM is a strictly governed, producer-only market that allows food products from all counties of Arkansas. Food and plants are the only products sold at the market. Meat, cheeses, and all the food groups, if grown on an Arkansas farm, may be sold at this market, provided the producer meets all market certification policies. Schools, community gardens and individual gardeners are also welcome to participate subject to certification.
