amenity=marketplace + building=yes, if it is actually an indoor market, 
ie with individual stalls selling their own products etc.

Though from what you describe, it sounds more like its just one shop - 
ie all operated by the same company, and with just one set of checkouts 
etc - but just calling itself a "farmers market"?
In which case, I would suggest tagging it as shop=greengrocer (if its 
mostly fruit and vegetables), or maybe shop=supermarket if it has a 
wider range of products.
Or maybe shop=food if it sells a range of foods (though that tag is 
currently undocumented).
