Beacon Farmers Market :: Committee Application
The mission of the Beacon Farmers’ Market is to feed and engage the Beacon community, support local farms and businesses and create a more just food system. The Market Committee is a group of volunteers who steer the Market and advise the Market Manager year-round.
