August is here at the Lloyd Farmers Market!

August 7, 2018

August is here! June and July can be exciting as new fruits and vegetables are coming to the market each week, but August and September are the true peak of seasonal abundance here in Oregon. Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, corn, eggplant, peaches, berries – all are plentiful and at peak flavor this time of year. It’s a great time for cooking local as well as preserving.

Our live music season continues today with singer/songwriter Katelyn Convery. Katelyn will be playing from 11am to 1pm.

We are looking for interested members of the community to join our board of directors! Scroll down for more information.

See below for more photos and a full list of vendors here today. See you at the market!

The Lloyd Farmers Market is now accepting applications to join its Board of Directors in January 2019! This board oversees both the Lloyd and the Hollywood Farmers Markets. Board membership is a terrific opportunity for 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 Monday, October 8th. The Board will invite candidates to an interview at the October 17th board meeting, and elections will take place that evening. New members will be seated effective January 1, 2019.

The application is available online here. Any questions about the recruitment process may be directed to Kristine Abraldes at recruitment@hollywoodfarmersmarket.org.
