The WSFMA’s mission is to support and promote vibrant and sustainable farmers markets in Washington State through member services, education and advocacy. Our vision is resilient farmers markets where vendors are successful and farm sales continue to grow and provide the public with access to fresh, healthy food and the farmers who grow it; where high consumer value is placed on Washington State’s small farms and farmers, and this is reflected in local and state policy.
We are seeking candidates with a vested interest in our mission and vision. We have 5 seats up for election at our Annual Meeting at the Semiahmoo Resort on Saturday February 4th, 2017 from 10-11:30am in Blaine, WA. We are specifically seeking new board members who can help us with development, fundraising, outreach, and strategic planning. The WSFMA was awarded 501c3 status in June of 2016 and we are exploring how to expand our capacities and enhance our services.
