As I have been researching more about the latest country artists, I realize that I know very little about the associations that support them. So I went on a little quest to find each of the country music associations in the USA and Canada. I could not find one listing of them…so I created one… I know I don’t have all the USA associations but the original CMA, of course! The Canadian provincial associations are listed by province along with the CCMA.
I also added those that I found for Britain, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I am happy to add others if you want to reach out on my contacts page.
Having grown up on a farm, I know how important local farmer’s markets are to those families. Whether it’s finding fresh products for your family or selling your produce locally.
Again, I could not find a single place where farmer’s markets were listed. Googling these would be haphazard since the naming is so inconsistent. So voila, I created a province by province listing of the provincial/local associations and their directories. Some of these sites have useful maps for locating the farmer’s markets.
For the USA, the only central listing was one created by a National Agriculture Organization, from 2014, but it likely has links that are mostly still valid…These are state by state.
If you are visiting a province/state, I hope it encourages you to check out the local farmer’s markets and support local.
Again, reach out if you have any updates/more info. Hope you enjoy these country links listings!
