The Anacortes Farmers Market (AFM) is a community-based organization developed exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. Specifically, the AFM (a) supports the education of the community about sustainable agriculture and local commerce, (b) lessens the burden of the local government through programs which bring affordable, local produce to the underprivileged (e.g. EBT programs) and supporting local commerce and tourism, (c) lessens neighborhood tensions through fostering community relations, and (d) combating community deterioration through the support of local commerce, especially local farmers.
