Customer dot survey, and live music, today at the Lloyd Farmers Market!

August 12, 2014

image

Today at the market we are holding our 2nd annual dot survey of market customers! This survey is a chance for us to learn a little more about you and for you to tell us what you think about the market. And it all happens with stickers! Make sure and fill out the survey (it should take less than 2 minutes) when you come down to the market today; we really appreciate it.
Our live music series continues today with guitarist John Twist, a market favorite. John will be playing from 11 am to 1pm. Other than that, it’s another glorious mid-summer market, with all the fruits and vegetables you could want! We have a new vendor at the market today – Home Grown Food Products, selling delicious fermented sauerkraut, kim chi and pickles!
In case you didn’t see last week’s post, we are currently looking for applicants to the market’s Board of Directors. This Board oversees both the Lloyd and Hollywood Farmers Markets, and we want to be sure to have folks from the LFM community represented. See this post for more information (towards the bottom).

The Lloyd Farmers Market is now accepting applications to join its Board of Directors in January 2015! This board oversees both the Lloyd and the Hollywood Farmers Markets. Board membership is a terrific opportunity for volunteers, vendors and market lovers to become involved with this successful nonprofit farmers market. The Board welcomes applications from individuals enthusiastic about the Market, and especially those with backgrounds in the areas of community outreach, agriculture, communications, human resources, accounting/financial planning, and marketing.
The Board is comprised of up to fifteen members, including a handful of seats which will be vacated at the end of this year. Board members serve a three year term and oversee the Lloyd and Hollywood Farmers Markets, which are both held year round. The Board’s primary responsibility is governance of the Markets. In addition, Board members will participate on a variety of committees where they can creatively contribute to the market’s weekly activities as well as influence the organization’s future. Members attend board meetings held on the third Wednesday evening of every month and also attend one or more committee meetings.  An annual Board retreat is held every January, and a vendor dinner and harvest festival are hosted by the Board throughout the year.
The deadline for applications is Saturday, September 19th. The Board will invite qualified candidates to an interview at the October 15th board meeting, and elections will take place that evening. New members will be seated effective January 1, 2015.
The application is available online at http://www.hollywoodfarmersmarket.org/wordpress/volunteers/board-application/. Any questions about the recruitment process may be directed to Suzanne Briggs at recruitment@hollywoodfarmersmarket.org.
