The Proctor Farmers' Market board invites applications from dedicated individuals who are committed to the mission of the market:
Proctor Farmers Market Eat Fresh, Buy Local, Build Community
The Proctor Farmers Market strives to provide the community with fresh, locally grown farm products while providing area growers with a venue for their crops and products.
In addition we seek to educate the public about the importance of local agriculture, sustainable business and the impact we have on the environment.
Bringing people together at the Farmers Market helps promote a greater sense of community, serves as an educational forum, and helps encourage local business development.
The Proctor Farmers Market's primary purpose shall be
1. To support and encourage local farmers by providing a venue in our urban community for direct marketing of fresh produce and farm grown products.
2. To be an educational resource to the public highlighting the importance of local agriculture, sustainable business and our impact on the environment.
3. To build community and collaborate with businesses, the neighborhood, and the greater community that the market serves.
Expectations of board members include attending monthly board meetings, attending an annual retreat, serving on a working committee of the board, and being involved with board business throughout the year in support of the market.
The board is composed of two categories of members: grower/producer vendor members and community members or product processor vendor members.
The board welcomes applications from vendors and community members, including those involved in Proctor businesses.
