and people from the BC farmers’ market sector who want to have a role in shaping the future of
farmers’ markets, communities, and food systems across British Columbia.
We are a passionate group who are enthusiastic about Farmers’ Markets and food security,
governance and the responsibility that comes with it, and we work hard to ensure we are doing
everything we can to support our members through our small and mighty staff team.
