Executive Director: West Virginia Farmers Market Association

The West Virginia Farmers Market Association (WVFMA), in conjunction with the WV Community Development Hub, is seeking applicants for the position of Executive Director.

The Executive Director will support the West Virginia Farmers Market Association in its work to assist and promote successful development of farmers markets across West Virginia.  The Executive Director will work with the WVFMA Board, supervise the staff and contractors and collaborate with a wide variety of partners, funders and stakeholders in order to further these goals.

As of 2014, there are currently at least 90 farmers markets operating at 112 locations in WV. These markets accounted for at least $8 million in direct sales in 2014 – up from $4 million in 2012, which is a 200% increase. These markets also served over half a million customers in 2014, bringing
fresh, local foods to West Virginia customers.  The Executive Director position with WVFMA provides an opportunity for the successful candidate to engage in dynamic and impactful work that helps benefit these markets and contribute to their continued growth.
