2021 Market Manager Mentorship Program

The BC Association of Farmers’ Market developed the Market Manager Mentorship Program to offer BC farmers’ market managers and staff one-on-one guidance, resources and networks to overcome challenges, and achieve business goals and success at their farmers’ markets.

Our 2021 program has completed. Stay tuned for information on the 2022 program.

“The mentorship program is the essence of how I feel market managers and others involved with farmers markets can and often do learn and grow. The market movement in BC is blessed with a group of people scattered around the province who are very open and sharing about their experiences with farmers’ markets.” – Mentor


“I think it was a very good experience. I was lucky with my mentor as he knows most of the players, the geography, the hurdles and pit falls, as well as he could see the potential of our market. It was a well balanced mentoring and he kept me on track as we progressed.” – Mentee

In our 2020 program…

 10 mentees and 6 mentors

Average rating of 8.5/10 for mentee and mentor experience
