The Hollywood Farmers Market is now accepting applications to join its Board of Directors in January 2015!

In addition, Board members will participate on a variety of committees where they can creatively contribute to the market’s weekly activities as well as influence the organization’s future. Members attend board meetings held on the third Wednesday evening of every month and also attend one or more committee meetings. An annual Board retreat is held every January, and a vendor dinner and harvest festival are hosted by the Board throughout the year.
