Hollywood Farmers Market Board Application
The mission of the Hollywood Farmers Market is to celebrate the bounty of Oregon agriculture through the operation of a community-based farmers market and other ventures that support small farmers and healthy urban neighborhoods.
The HFM Board of Directors is responsible for the overall success of the organization by acting in accordance with our mission and values, and by supporting our staff, vendors, and community. (And we sure like to have fun along the way!)
