Our Advisory Committee

Since its inception, the Farmer and Community Advisory Committee (FCAC) has played a valuable role in guiding Greenmarket policy and operations. The FCAC meets monthly to provide a forum for ideas, guidance in implementing the Greenmarket mission, peer review in the enforcement of Greenmarket Regulations, and a hearing place for Producer grievances.

The FCAC includes several subcommittees:

Development considers ways to implement and promote the Greenmarket Mission.
Advocacy investigates confidential recommendations and complaints by farmers, consumers and managers to resolve disputes.
Nominations takes steps to assure that nominations for membership on the FCAC reflect the diversity of farmers and producers in Greenmarkets.
Budget reviews the Greenmarket budget.
Regulations reviews and initiates proposals for change in the Greenmarket Regulations.
By-Laws reviews and initiates proposals for change in the FCAC By-Laws.

The FCAC has created an internal website that is password protected and available to all Greenmarket producers. The site contains information about the work of the committee as well as resources for the entire Greenmarket producer community. Please click here to request access and view the site.

Inclement weather in the city or in the greater region does affect markets;  markets may close early, or snow-bound farmers may not be able to make it into the city.
