 LOCAL NONPROFIT AND BUSINESS
JOIN FORCES TO HELP FARMERS

Continued from Home Page.
The Maine Federation of Farmers' Markets (MFFM), a nonprofit based in Pittsfield, recently held its 10th annual Maine Farmers' Market Convention. The event was held at the Augusta Civic Center on Thursday, January 11th, with more than 150 farmers, vendors, and service providers attending from all over the state. A key sponsor of the event was TD Bank. The team at the Newport TD Bank branch, pictured here, were instrumental in securing the sponsorship for MFFM. The convention is an educational opportunity for farmers, and sponsorship helps keep registration costs low, which is particularly important for new and beginning farmers. The Federation developed this partnership, bringing together a nonprofit and area business in the Sebasticook Valley.
