Farmers Market Metrics
Farmers Market Metrics (Metrics) is evaluation & data communication software that empowers market operators to tell their market’s story. Streamlined metrics (reporting forms) and data collection methods are combined with training resources, and a dynamic data entry website to automate analysis and reporting.
The scalable and customizable system maximizes the utility of, and builds upon data already collected by market management, while facilitating the communication of market impacts to customers, vendors, funders, and other partners.
Facilitating data collection and reports for market operators.
Automatic data sharing between software systems
FMC is creating partnerships with online data management software developers which will reduce the time needed to enter data into two systems. Marketwurks and Manage My Market are the first data management software systems where an API is available for similar data entered in one system to be automatically entered into the other. Check in with their customer service departments to learn more. (Other software developers interested in adding an API with Metrics, use the contact form.)
Farmers Market Operators
The Metrics software program is designed exclusively for market operators to use. Accountholders create farmers market profiles (baseline data) for each site they manage, manage market-level day, annual, and/or seasonal survey data, all with automated reporting templates that populate the aggregated calculated entered data. Each market site’s profiles is also separately downloadable to share with funders or vendors interested in learning more about the many sites that a market operator manages.
