BC Association of Farmers' Markets


Effective board governance is one of the most important factors in determining whether a farmers' market will succeed. Whether small or large, new or old, your market's ability to navigate all the twists and turns and to thrive in your community depends greatly on having a healthy board of directors.

The second edition of the BCAFM's Board Governance Training Manual will support you in doing just this - and help your farmers' market board reach your full potential. This updated guide reflects the growing and changing needs of non-profit farmers' market boards since the first edition was printed in 2010.

Tailored specifically for farmers' markets, the manual includes:
  • Farmers’ Market Organizational Models: Advantages & Disadvantages
  • Specific Board Member Roles
  • Board Policy Basics – Plus Decision Making and Conflict of Interest
  • Creating Committees and Running Meetings
  • + Much more!
