Thank You to Our Market Community Group Members!

Our markets could not exist without the support of our communities. Our greatest community champions and advocates for the markets are the members of our Market Community Groups. These individuals wear many hats, acting on behalf of CFM as volunteers, vendors, neighborhood liaisons, educational chefs, and so much more. The Market Community Groups ensure that markets represent the best of the neighborhood by engaging their friends, neighbors, local businesses, and community organizations to participate in the development of strong, sustainable, community-oriented farmers markets. We could not be more grateful for the passion and drive of our Market Community Group members!
