Panhandle Fresh Marketing Association

Panhandle Fresh Marketing Association (PFMA) is a community based food system model supporting the gulf coast region.  PFMA began in November 2007 as a 501 C4, not for profit organization and was created for the purpose of assisting small to medium size farmers expand their current markets.

In Northwest Florida and Southern Alabama, speciatly crops have been successfully grown; however, production is seasonal and markets are limited. PFMA was established to expand the markets that farmers can use as well as provide farmers with a distribution system to help increase their sales and revenues.

PFMA was established through an Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) grant with the mission to increase the supply and expand markets to meet consumer demand for locally grown food. The potential impacts of the grant are to:

  • Increase the supply of specialty crops
  • Increase profitability and sustainability of small farms
  • Crease a distribution center to reach all market sectors
  • Expand marketing options to meet consumer demand for locally grown produce
  • Increase community awareness
