Mill City Farmers Market (MCFM) is dedicated to the health and sustainability of our community. While not all of our vendors are USDA Certified Organic, they all adhere to our Sustainability Statement, which follows.
MCFM supports local food; food that is fresh, healthy, seasonal and that builds and strengthens local economies. In selecting vendors, MCFM gives priority to regional farmers and producers who bring products to market that are 100% grown and harvested on land they own and/or operate. Occasional non-local exceptions, reviewed on a case-by-case basis, are made for producer direct products that complement MCFM’s mission and fill product gaps.
Furthermore, MCFM requires vendors selling value-added foods, baked goods and prepared food must use a minimum of 25% local ingredients, preferably using local ingredients sourced directly from MCFM agricultural vendors. Read more about our Local Sourcing Standard.
MCFM vendors are selected based on their fit with our mission and commitment to environmentally, economically and socially sustainable practices. MCFM supports growers and vendors committed to sustainable practices and land stewardship, including USDA Certified Organic and Certified Naturally Grown growers.
